Best of the Best

Jim was the kindest, gentlest and most patient person I know. We all considered him "our big Brother" and in return, he treated us like gold. Our family had so many good times - Jim added to the fun - letting us younger ones stand on his feet, while teaching us how to dance in the kitchen; playing ball in the front yard and joining in on "kick the can" or hide'n'seek. Jim took some of us to our very first film at a movie theater - Blue Hawaii with Elvis Presley - for us farm kids, that was a real adventure; huge screen and our own treat. My fondest memory is of Jim teaching me how to drive his big car. I was very small, but he promised me driving lessons, so when he wasn't busy in the fields or the barn, he would let me sit on his lap - I got to do the steering,while he operated the gear shift, brake and gas pedal and we went "punkwards and packwards" until I said that I was tired and we could stop now. I had more lessons and never once did he say that we were going to stop because he was bored. He always teased me about it and I will miss him so much. Jim was always with us through the "Good Times and Bad" and was our ROCK through the SAD times. We will miss you so much. LOVING YOU FOREVER!
