  1. We are extremely sad to hear of Jim’s sudden death. Our condolences are with the family. So sorry for your loss. We’ve known Jim for a few years. In a short time we got to know of his kindness, generosity, love of people, love for God. He was our friend. We met Jim when we knocked on his door to share the Bible’s message and we’ve kept in touch ever since. This past year he became our landlord. He worked hard to make sure we were well taken care of. We will miss Jim very much.

    Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.”
