Sad to hear of the passing of my cousin Jim. He and John would come out to Arizona in the summers and stay with us out in Laveen. Lots of great memories. Sad that we didn’t stay in touch in our later years.
I enjoyed working with James. He was always so nice and will be missed by all of our group of retirees from the post office.
I Love you Uncle Jim! Heaven gained another warrior!! You’ll be missed! We’ll see you soon!
love you Ron and Cinthia Reed
love you both Cindy and Ron .
two brothers and one sister.
