Such wonderful memories of Jim and Doris always working on some project. When we’d meet on the road, always big waves and a hello. Jim always was cutting wood and stacking it up. He’d say just come get it. Doris so sorry for your loss, prayers for you and your family

So many great memories with Jim and Doris when we'd see them on their place working on some project. Meet them on the road for a big hello and waves, on their way to keep the grandchildren. Wonderful neighbor Jim was. He would cut wood and stack it, and say just come get it. Tim
And I will sure miss Jim. Doris, you and the family are in our prayers.
