    Maizie, Marlon, Shelley and Families.
    Please accept our deepest sympathy in the passing of your Husband, Father, Grandfather and my dear friend.
    Jim and I go back almost 60 years now and he surely was a friend and partner to me. He was the first driller I ever worked for. He taught me how to operate and maintain that equipment. We had our times. God Bless you all.
