Jeanette and family,
I talked with Chris tonight and she told me of Jim's passing. He will be missed by his many friends that he made in Noble County since coming here 20 years ago. He will be remembered by many as the one who took the pictures including all those at the Senior Apartments. He will also be remembered by those at Summit Acres for all the kind deeds and services that he did for all with that smile always on his face. Know that he will be remembered for a long time and we have you in our prayers.

Jeanette & family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Jim was one special, sweet guy and will be so greatly missed. The Senior Apartments will never be the same. For it to happen so fast has to be so devastating to you but sometime fast is for the best. No one needs to suffer long. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God will see you through.
