    Oh my, I’m so sorry to hear this. I guess I’ve known Jim since he & Bonnie got together. I’m not sure when I 1st actually met him. But every winter & summer he’d give my furnace & AC a checkup and come over whenever I had an issue. He’d make me the last stop because it was on the way home. We’d spend more time talking, reminiscing & discussing people we both knew. My heart goes out to Bonnie and the rest of his family whom he always talked with pride about.

    Bonnie and family – Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. It seems like just a few months ago that Jim and Dick rang the bell together at Mayo. Bonnie – I’m just a phone call away my friend if you need me.

    Jim has been in our prayers so often lately. The Troop, Crew and District will miss Jim’s upbeat spirit always with a smile. He always acted like a little kid on campouts with the scouts! He made everything fun and safe. My heart is sad at Jim’s passing. A prayer for you Bonnie, Erik and the rest of your friends at the passing of this wonderful man.

    I also know he’s having a party in heaven with Jesus right now and I’ll see him again.

    Please call if you need anything
