    Sorry to hear about your loss. I didn’t hear about the service times until today(5/17). Jim was my first cousin, but we had not seen each other in many years. I pray, that all the family has God’s Blessing in this sad time.

    My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Mr. Jim’s family. I have worked closely, advertising for Carousel Horse since they opened, and never met a finer individual. He was always upbeat and such a delight. Virginia, friends care, and will help you deal with his loss. Sending my love.
