On behalf of Artie and the congregation of Lovers Lane United Methodist Church, I encourage those who would have come to Jim's memorial service today, to post a message of comfort to Artie and a remembrance of Jim. During this COVID-19 season, hugs are hard to come by, and words do mean so much. God bless you, and thank you God, for Jim's loving legacy.

will miss you as a canasta pardoner..
Farewell and will look forward to more canasta games in heaven.

It was so nice to see Jim sitting in his chair on lovely afternoons, by his garage, waving at everyone driving by or going to the mail box. He and Artie were wonderful neighbors. Thoughts and prayers are with Artie and the family.

Jim was a very kind man. He was a quiet man, always a gentleman. I will miss seeing him sitting in a chair by his garage, soaking in the afternoon sun, or going to the mailbox. He will be missed by all his neighbors.
