    I am so saddened to hear of James' passing into the arms of Our Lord. He was a true reflection of Our Savior Jesus Christ and such a joy to be around. He always had a smile and kind words to share. You will all be in my continuing prayers.

    I worked with Jim at the airport and it was a pleasure to know him and work with him. He is one of the nicest people I've ever known. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, may he rest in peace.

    Jim was always a kind and gentle soul. Loved working with him and will always remember the day he retired. He wore his original uniform on his last day of work with Northwest. How many can actually say they still fit into their uniform many years later?!
