Dear Linda and family,
We are saddened to learn that Jim is no longer with us. His untimely death has been a blow to all who knew him.
It was a weekly highlight to be with him and the “Bogey Busters” At Westview. It is hard to imagine a more congenial group of friends enhanced by “Lube” as a perennial member.
We send our sincere condolences, God’s Blessings and best wishes. We hope your faith, caring friends and valued memories will bring comfort as you carry on Jim’s legacy.
RIP, fellow left hander.
