Jim. You are My brother in law more like a brother to me .. u were a part of my life since I was 2 years old . You were with our family all of the time as a teenager at our home at 188 Elk , at our camp at Burden Lake , hunting with my dad & my mom, my cousins & I too. Then you married my sister & gave her the greatest gift of all … her son Jim. He was a miracle!! A blessing it made us all happy to have your beautiful baby boy come into our lives. And for many decades later you were a part of our lives . You were always playing with my kids and our granddaughter Lilly. You would blow her kisses . Play peek a boo. And wave to each other. Laughing and even at the hospital when you were so sick … she is asking for Jimmy all of the time. I love you and miss you greatly .. you were a big part of my life. Rest In Peace .. love Mary

I just read about the recent death of James and I know Colleen and the Bogart family and loved ones have saddened hearts today. So I wanted to share beautiful scripture where our loving heavenly Father, Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18), promises us that he is going to do away with man’s greatest enemy, death. Rev. 21: 4; “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. Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: “And no resident will say “I am sick,” ever again. God’s kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalm 34:18
Your are in my prayers.
