Please accept my deepest condolences to your family. I would like to offer encouragement to your family for the loss of your loved one. The Bible offers immense comfort and many wonderful promises from God foretelling an end to our enemy death. The scriptures at Isaiah 25:8 says, “He will swallow up death forever…”. Also at Revelation 21:4 it says, “And He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please read these verses in your Bible and feel free to find additional comforting scriptures at jw.org.

My best memory with Jim was the spring of 1989. Jim asked me to join him coaching a girls’ softball team in Delano. This was who Jim was - dedicated to his community, coaching kids, and welcoming me as the “new kid” at work. We had a great time! I still remember the last game of the season - a double-header. We let the kids choose their positions and line-up for the second game.... our best pitcher wanted to catch, the center fielder moved in to pitch, everyone was in a new position. The kids had so much fun that last game, Jim and I looked at each other and wondered what we had been doing all season! Truly good times. RIP Jim, you made a difference in so many lives.
