Condolence From: Jake, Tasha, Brooklyn & Harper Albaugh
Condolence: We are sorry to hear about your loss. There’s no doubt in my mind that Brenden met him at the gate with his big bear hug and a kiss on the cheek. We are always here for you, family of Brendens is family of mine. We love you guys.

Condolence: To Sue and family
What a beautiful tribute. I knew Jim when we worked together at the Sears Store in Calcutta. Your tribute brought back so many great memories and I could almost hear his voice in song as he came through the door or sat near our counter. I am one of those who were blessed to have a caricature of my son and daughter sketched by Jim with books like Huckleberry Finn, Treasure Island, and Uncle Remus on either side. It IS hanging on my wall and I’ve always treasured it. My thoughts are with you all...he was a treasure of a gentleman. Donna

Condolence: I am so sorry for your loss. May God’s promise bring comfort to your family. There will be “a new earth... and He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore...I am making all things new.” Revelation 21:1-5

Condolence From: Bob and Pat Trotter..
Condolence: What a beautiful and deserving tribute of a man we all knew and loved as a good friend. Bob always showed friends his "portrait" and joked that Jim could have given him a "flat belly." We will all treasure good memories of Jim his family and of the times together. Our deepest sympathy and condolences to Sue and all the family. Our prayers for God's love and comfort in the days ahead.

Condolence From: Tina Lockhart Simmons
Condolence: I have know Jim for many many years, he was a dear friend, to both my dad, Bugs Lockhart but also to my stepdad and mom, Bill and Mary Lucas. He was also so kind and friendly to me every time I would run into him somewhere. And as for his artistry He did several drawings for our family. So very talented.

May Gods grace provide the family with peace and comfort.
