  1. Growing up with you, Jim and Kitten on the hill in Bella Vista, AR. are some of my most favorite memories. You will be so greatly missed.

    Love Amy

  2. My deepest condolences. May the God of comfort continue to comfort your family during this time of grief. The bible assures us that our Heavenly Father “is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit .” (Psalms 34:18) knowing that God has the power to resurrect our loved ones back to life (John 5:28,29) is very comforting to me and I hope this promise will bring you comfort as well.

  3. I Love You Dad, I Know that we didn;t get a whole lot of time to get toknow eachother, But i still wish i had every single one of theose precious Moments to re live again.
