i will try to keep this short,,there are so many memories whirling right now. My funniest memory of Dad is the time we had a rental car with automatic retracting seatbelts. As mom and i are walking to the door we hear Dad call out,,; Cindy,,Cindy,,help,,its got me!! We turn around to be greeted by the sight of my father with his neck caught in the retracting seatbelt and slowly losing the battle,,,and in case you're wondering what Mom did,,,she laughed. So did I. Mom was also awakened by him sleepwalking one night,,she found him struggling with a two litre of soda,,when asked what he was doing,,he replied that Jason was getting ready to float away in the rain and he was trying to save me. I love you and I'll miss you so much Dad. i will leave my favorite sunset I shot in the desert. Dont work too hard man.

Jim would share Psalm 121 with all the nurses,aides and even our cleaning lady.That was before he became more confused.That is what he clung to.

Cindy, Jason and Jarrod, Joanne and Carl, Our deepest sympathies to you and your families. We have so many memories to keep in our hearts and make us smile. One of my favorites was when we would play Masterpiece, Jim would convince me every time we played that his masterpiece was legitimate and would trick me into believing him and I would fall for it every time. He also loved to tease me about my love for sauerkraut. We can remember Jim sitting in his chair at your home praying silently. .We miss the Jim we used to know but are thankful he loved Jesus. He was always asking us to pray for him, even in the nursing home when we were allowed to visit. He is at peace now. I leave you with the scripture you shared with us Cindy you said Jim loved...Psalm 121
