We remember Jim as the perfect gentlemen and consumate host. Always welcoming, attentive to all, friendly and interested in others. We felt completely comfortable in Jim and Betsy's prescence. Jim was always thoughtful and never had a harsh word to say about anyone. He will be greatly missed and remembered in our prayers. Karen Lawsing & Ken Wiggin Jesse Arbogast & Tina Owen Julia Arbogast
