- We are so sorry for your loss.Jim was a great man and we will miss talking to him on the phone.we enjoyed his friendship.
- My thoughts and prayers go out the Little family during this time of loss and final goodbyes. I knew Jim when we were in school and rode the school bus together. He was a good kid back then, and I am sure he remained so throughout his adult life.My other connection to the Little family is that my parents, Frank and Elizabeth Hugenberg Mock, knew Jim's parents through the years. Jim will live on in the memories of those who knew him and dwell on his good in this world.
- I was sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
