Joanna, I saw this rather by accident as I don't always follow the Shenandoah news any more, but I was so stunned to read about Jim. How well I remember you both, as a darling young couple - your writing to him every day while he was in the service, and then the pleasure of being in your wedding. You and Jim were amongst my first adult friends. I am so sorry to hear of his death; Jim was very a very kind and nice man. I know he will be missed. I am thinking of you.

I am sorry for your loss of such a Wonderful man. I was honored to once have him as part of my family. I will miss his smile and kindness. Rest in peace, Jim. God bless you and your family.
I rented office space from Jim nearly 20 years ago. That was my first opportunity to really get to know him and I so enjoyed seeing him through the years, catching up or just seeing how he was doing. He touched my life and many others in his time here on earth. My prayers are with all of you at this time of loss of such a good man.
My first landlord in Shenandoah! A long time ago....I rented the third floor at 402 West Street. The Androy family lived downstairs. And the little boys arrived. What fun to grow up with them around. My thoughts and prayers are with you Jerry and all of the relatives. My sympathy.
JoAnn, Jerry, & Jackie So sorry for your loss, Jim was a good friend and great guy, with always that big smile on his face. I will miss him as well and my thoughts will be with you if I don't make the service. Fighting a relentless cold.
Joanna, Jerry, & Paige. I just heard of Jim's passing and I will miss him. Jim would always have a smile and a hug and was a very caring man. I have such good memories of Jim and Jo and considered them very good friends. We shared a lot of tears and laughter over the years. Both Jim and Jo were genuine and loving people. Give Joanna a hug for me. Those two made a great team and touched a lot of people in a good way. My deepest condolences to Jerry and Paige, prayers are on going for you.
Joanna, Jerry, Paige, and Jackie:
Jim was such a wonderful family friend of ours. He and my late husband Donnie were childhood friends and school chums. Always together. Our family spent lots of weekends down to "Big Lake" at Jim & Joanna's cabin. That's where my 3 kiddo's learn to water ski. Jim will be missed in Shenandoah, as he was a prominent business man for years, and I will miss visiting with him by phone from time to time. Jim struggled long and hard trying to get over his illness. So sorry..

To Jim, a longtime friend and classmate: "The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace."
I deepest sympathy for your loss.
I have fond memories going to see Jim and Aunt Noanie with Kala and Kelli. We had an unexpected sleepover at their home due to a snowstorm. It was Kala, Kelli, my sister Cindy, and cousin Debbie. I don't think they knew what to expect with a bunch of girls. We had a blast. Jim and Noanie were such kind caring people, and I will always remember them.

Joanne and Jerry, we are so sorry to here of Jim's passing. I had a nice long visit with your mom and dad in January. Jim was so proud of the digital picture scrapbook you had set up for them. He had me watch it as it had pictures of my dad and him. I'm so happy I got to see both of them. Your dad was so proud of you. Jim was a great and caring man.
