We are very sorry for your loss. We worked with Jim at the Darlington Post Office. We was a good guy.......most of the time, as we all know he could be. He will be missed. Rest in peace Jim.

To Jim's Family, It's the little things, the small, everyday occurrences that you'll remember. The laughs,the stories,the smiles. And even though it seems like you can never recover from your loss, it is these very memories that will push the pain away and bring back the smiles. May his soul rest in peace.

Sorry for your loss. We didn't really know him that long. But we enjoyed every minute we had together camping at Bayshore. We will miss his campfires and talk. RIP Joan&Chuck
