Jim’s helpful way, quiet manner and ever present smile will be a lasting memory of our friend at Emmanuel Baptist Church. May all who are family to Jim find a deep peace and support of friends through the days ahead. Peace be to his memory.

For many years my office was located at Emmanuel Baptist Church and many a time it was Jim who was there to let me in when I forgot my keys or had my hands full – always a loyal, kind presence willing to help. He knew every nook & cranny, every dripping pipe and spot that needed a coat of paint – he was a loving caretaker of that magnificent building and always the happiest when he had something to paint. My condolences to his family. May peace and comfort dwell in your house. – Debra Jameson
