    Charity, I don’t even know if you remember me, Jim had so many friends from all over the place! Basically I’ve known Jim all my life since we were neighbors growing up on neighboring farms. Went through grade school, high school and I sure have a lot of funny, good memories hanging out with him and all our school gang! I always so much enjoyed talking and reminiscing with him, he was always such a clown! Everybody loved Jimmy! I really got a kick out of the song he sang while playing his quitar at the last class reunion in 2015. He will surely be misses greatly. So glad I got to joke and laugh with him then. Never in my wildest dreams did I think he would not be around for the next one. Growing up, Jim was like a fill in brother to me and we got into some pretty hairy fights too. One time he put a staple in my butt with a staple gun! That did not go over well! I know that Jim had a bucket list and from what I understand he fulfilled a good part of them. He was always game for anything! He lived life to the fullest and I always admired him for that free spirit he possessed. I’ve lost a dear old friend for life and my heart aches as I think of memories of him. Charity, know that you couldn’t have found a better man to marry. And I know Jim just adored you too! I pray the comfort of your lives, well lived together, along with cherished memories will bring you peace of mind and soul in the tough days that lie ahead for you and your kids. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I mourn with you even though miles away. May God shower blessings on you today, tomorrow and years to come. Jim leaves a legacy of a life well lived and that will always be remembered fondly. Take one day at a time and take care. Barb Haschemeyer- Lewis

    Dear Charity and family,
    Please accept our condolences in the loss of your beloved Jim. Elaine and I will cherish the many memories of our Wartburg reunions with him that we held every two years. He brought laughter to our group reunions and always brought his guitar to entertain us in the evenings. It was so good being with Jim in June at Lake of the Ozarks.
    We pray the Holy Spirit will give you comfort in these days ahead.
    Currently we are travelling and will be unable to attend the visitation but will be with you in our thoughts and prayers.
    Royal and Elaine Benjamin

    Dear Charity & family,

    Ruth and I were deeply sadden by Jim’s passing. He was a good person who spoke lovingly of you and your children each time we met at the many Wartburg, Men of CIN reunions. I was always impressed with Jim’s positive attitude in light of his physical challenges. We always enjoyed his sense of humor, sharp wit and musical talents. He will be missed.
    Please accept our heart felt condolences on your loss and know that we will keep you and your family in our hearts and prayers.
