Susan, we are so sorry to hear of Jim's death. We did not hear in time to visit or would have certainly been there to pay our respects. Thought a lot of Jim, he will be missed!

Jim, I both admire and respect you for all your volunteering and hard work you’ve done at church throughout the years, especially the times you weren’t in the best of health. You, Susan, and your family have been a real Blessing at St Mary’s of Navilleton. May your soul, and all the souls of the faithful now Rest In Peace!
