Jim, Crystal, Callie and Luke. What do you say at a time like this...... I say Jim was a very decent young man. Honest , good-natured, hard working and a loving son... A son you will always be proud of... I can not fathom the pain you all are feeling right now. But i do know he is in the fathers hand. A most merciful father. The author and finisher. I have forever questioned his actions, but found that his plan is beyond are reasoning. We must honor him, trust him, and surrender to his will. I pray that God blesses you and keeps you all safe. Amen... Jim I truly love you like a brother..
