Jim''''s infectious, mischievous smile and enthusiastic singing will be missed by his friends at Farmington Presbyterian Church. Yet we are confident of Christ''''s promises of resurrection, and assured of the Lord''''s Benediction on a life well lived. Thank you, Jim, for your service to Christ and Kingdom these many years.

Dear Isabel and family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Jim life was a blessing to me as I briefly served the Farmington Presbyterian church. He was always gracious and encouraging. In good Presbyterian fashion I believe the church will approve his letter of transfer to the heavenly church eternal with their highest recommendations. Blessings, Nancy Gillard
