    Our heartfelt sorrows are shared with you all. Saying goodbye to the ones we love leaves a hole in our hearts which is filled by loving memories. Love never dies or fades away; it stays with us everyday with the moments that we shared that are apart of us forever until we meet again. The time we (me and my service birds) spent with Jim and his loving family at the hospice was a special moment filled with love and a special song to Jim from Charity to give Jim a Celebration of life song for his new journey within another life with no pain. Take care Jim you are part of our special moments to your family and friends. With prayers and blessings. Love: Sonia and her little birds too. Pearl, Gracie, Charity and Sunshine. Beeps all around!! You’re in our hearts forever and the love of your family lives on with the soon be arrival of your grandchild. God Bless to Jim and Prayers to the Harder Families.

    Auntie Julie, Jess, Jordon and families, we just want to tell you we are thinking of you and share your sorrow. It is hard to lose someone you care for so deeply, but it is important to remember how much at peace they are now. You will think of him often and someday maybe even without tears.

  9. Dear; Julie, Jess, and Jordan
    I am so sorry to hear about Jim’s passing. Jim was an amazing man that regularly made me laugh when I was a temperamental teen. A true testament to the type of wonderful person that he was. I know you were all a very close family and his loss surely left a huge void. Try to remember all of the good times rather than the hard. You are all in my thoughts. Love, Diana Babcock

  10. I miss you so much my brother. I keep going back and reading this because I still can’t believe you are gone. I want to remember the person that I see in this picture. You have the most beautiful grandson with a very strong name. Wolfgang…we will be sure to teach him all about his Grandpa. I think about you everyday and miss you so very much. I feel for your family and the loss that they are adapting to. I will always remember and love you. Missed more than words can say.
    Your sister…Shay
