Jenna, your grandpa was always an upbeat and fun guy. Of all his wonderful traits, we will miss his hardy laugh the most. We were blessed that our paths crossed 40+ years ago and that we remained friends for all the years since. Whenever we reconnected, either by phone or in person, it felt like we had taken a single breath and then continued where our conversation had left off. Hope you tucked an Old Style in with Jim before you said your final goodbye. Our sympathy extends to your entire family and all of Jim's friends. He will be truly missed. Paul and Phyllis, Minneapolis

Grandpa, your wild and one of a kind spirit will be terribly missed. I look back on all our times together, though few, and know we were always laughing. Until I see you again, I love you and will think of you often.

Dearest Kim and Family: I am deeply saddened to hear of your father's death. While in high school and college I spent a lot of time at your house and at his father's house and would see your Dad a lot. I always thoroughly enjoyed his pleasant personality. The picture you chose captures his wonderful spirit. He was quick to laugh and always connected with people on such a personal level. He always was interested in what was going on in one's life. I did not know of the North Carolina connection with his military service until today. You are all in my thoughts and prayers and I know you will have a wonderful celebration of his full life. Take care. Ann (Kiekhaefer) White Raleigh North Carolina
