Dear Pat and Family,
Sending our sympathy and prayers to you all on the passing of Jim. He was such a blessing to my Dad, bringing Communion and a happy story every week.

My condolences to Jim’s wife and entire family including all of us who continue to be friends of Bill W’s. Jim has been an inspiration in my life since I first met him in 1989 after moving here from another part of the Midwest. I know we will continue to celebrate his life throughout ours as many of us did early this morning. Rest In Peace dear Friend and may your family be comforted in their grief knowing how much you gave to them and others.

It was a great honor taking care of Jim in Little Chute. He was truly an amazing man who always had something to say to make you smile. He was a blessing to many people and will be missed. Thinking of his family during this time and wishing them peace.

My Prayers and thoughts are with Jim’s family. He was a wonderful friend and support to me while attending “Friend
of Bills” meetings. For years he called me on Thanksgiving mornings and wake me up to say “Happy Thanksgiving you rotten kid”. He was a wonderful person who gave so much of his time to anyone who needed help. He was a shinning example of how we all should love others. I will miss him very much.

Jim was an encredable man who ALWAYS put others before himself. Jim taught us to be Master of circumstances instead of victims of circumstances.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
