    Our condolences to Casey and the rest of Jim's family. Jim was always nice when I would come over to hang out with Casey or for band practice. As I've grown older, I've often though about contacting Jim to tell him thanks. So Jim, thanks for letting us use your barn and electricity for band practice. Thanks for fixing that old AC unit and installing it in the barn for all those hot summers. Thanks for putting insulation in the barn to keep us comfortable. Thanks for making those big pots of chili so there was enough for us to eat too. Thanks for bringing home extra pizza all those Friday nights because you knew we would be there for practice. These are things I appreciated then, but even more so now that I'm older with my own kids. Rest in peace.

    Casey I am sorry for your loss, your Dad was a great guy. Pam I am sorry for your loss as well and I regret not coming to see him, I am sorry I didn't after you had asked me to. If you need anything let me and Carrie know. Jim was such a wonderful person. He and I became good friends over the past few years and I regret not going to visit him lately. Jim was sharp as a tack in his younger years. Great great person. He would take all of us to the bmx freestyle shows in his Ford pickup when we was kids. Casey, myself, Stacey Ely, AJ Lindsey, Sean Fleenor, we would all pile in the back and ride for couple hours away to watch the freestyle shows at different bike shops in the Midwest. Jim I will never forget you my friend and I will always think of you when I see a Cessna flying in the sky. RIP

    Casey, Im so sorry to hear of your dads passing. Many years ago Jim had a Road Runner. I was probably 4 or 5. He'd drive by and honk the horn for me, knowing I loved that car. Jim was a Great guy!
