I only knew Jim for a short time. But every time I visited we would talk about the Vols, God, Heaven, and his family. Will miss visiting with him.

I know Uncle Jim is now experiencing every thing he loved to sing about
I can only imagine how my mom and Aunt Thelma must have greeted him
Thankful for that glad reunion day
