Jim was such an important part of Zion Lutheran during my youth. He was a fascinating and unique character with strong opinions and was never afraid to share them. He was generous with his time and always encouraged my brother and I in our church music professions (despite never being able to carry a tune!). I think he truly loved being in the middle of the action, whether in the kitchen or elsewhere, and his legendary cooking will long be remembered. May perpetual light shine on you, James G.

Jim and I worked with many others over the years, serving in Zion Lutheran\'s kitchen and on the Welcome committee. His desserts were amazing and he did, indeed, love to hear the many compliments that came his way. I will never forget Jim\'s unique way of answering his telephone, with his long, beautifully drawn-out, \Reeecckkkeeerrs!\" I enjoyed Jim\'s friendship for many years. He loved his Saviour and is now with Him face-to-face. What a joy it must be for him. I look forward to seeing you again one day
