I am a bit speechless. Jim's daughter and I are the same age. We grew up together. In fact, I don't remember not knowing Susie.
Jim knew everyone in South Dakota, and probably the tri-state region. He could talk to ANYONE. Everyone who knows him knows I am not exaggerating.
Jim loved Jesus and loved people. He would do anything for anyone in need. His heart was as big as the Pacific Ocean.
Jim loved his family and his church family. There were constantly relatives coming and going. Jim loved to tell me, or anyone, about his grandkids, his kids, his wife, his sister, etc. He also loved to talk to and about his church family.
I've never met anyone who didn't love Jim-if there were those who didn't, they probably were too afraid to say anything!
Jim will be missed more than words can express.
"I can only imagine...will I dance for You, Jesus, will I be able to speak at all? I can only imagine."
I don't think Jim is speechless!
