Mary Deering,

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. May you be comforted to remember that Jesus said, "Don't let your hearts be trouble you have faith in God, have faith also in me." Please know Jim had faith, so he will be in heaven with his Lord. May Our Lord Jesus watch over you in your time of need.

I worked with Jim for several years at Omron Electronics. He was a hard working, caring person who always had a smile for people he worked with. I was so sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to his family and friends. I'm sure he will be missed by many.
