Dear Family,
I'm so very sorry for your loss. I was saddened to learn of Jim's passing. He was a very kind man that always had something nice to say with a smile on his face when I would see him at the lodge. Let the precious memories keep you at peace as he is now.

I was sad to hear of Jim's passing. Jim was a great friend to the Town of James Island and served with me on the Town of James Island Board of Zoning Appeals since 2012, our Town's last incorporation. We greatly appreciate his service to the Board and to the Town. We are keeping his family in our thoughts and prayers.
