    We have just learned of Jim’s homegoing this morning and our hearts ache even as we rejoice knowing he is laughing and telling stories with Jesus. Jim and Linda were important parts of our faith journey when we were in a small group together a number of years ago. They cared for us and prayed for us and our daughters. We often quoted Jim’s observation “nothing good happens after midnight” when they begged to have their curfews extended. He was a dear, dear man. Our hearts are with Linda and all the family!
