Although I did not know Jim and his family personally, I do know Ms. Billie to whom I am very fond. My heart goes out to the family, especially to Jim’s mother. I cannot imagine how very difficult it is for her, but I want her to know that my prayers and sincerest condolences are extended to her and all the family. May God bless each one of you during this time of great sorrow.
Best friends are so very rare. Jim was mine from 1965-1967 in High School and beyond. He was a treasure, and I will miss him dearly. Thank you Peg, and Mark for keeping me in the loop. May God bless you all.
To the Chambers Family,
How blessed you were to have Jim as a husband, father, and grandfather. I was blessed to call him my friend. Lincoln County has suffered a great loss. Jim always had a smile and most often a joke to share when I saw him.
Your family will be remembered in my prayers. God Bless you all.
Peg, Mary, Katie and family,
We have so many wonderful memories of Jim – his caring, generous nature and that big, infectious laugh. What a blessing to have had this man in our lives – a dear friend to Clay and me, a stand-in Grandpa for our girls. He has always been so loving and encouraging to “his girls”; they all adored him and those “unique” cheers of his. What fun he brought to every gathering, big or small.
We loved Jim so very much; he will live in our hearts always. We are praying God will give you great comfort in this time of hurt.
Clay, Gwynn, Katie and Clay
It can not be true! The man with a pep in every step with a stride to match that great enthusiasm gone on to the great big blue. Clark and I saw Jim the last time we were home visiting, I got my hug and Clark got that big man Jim handshake. What a guy! We both thought the world of Jim. Please know we are thinking of you all and sending many (((HUGS))).

Please accept my heartfelt condolences at the loss of your Father. Although I didn’t know him personally, I understand he was held in very high regard by those who did. May your cherished memories comfort you now and in the days to come.
Katie and family,
I have been thinking about you constantly and I have been where you are and I know there is nothing I can say that will make the hurt go away,just know that you have lots of people that love you and that you can lean on during the many rough days ahead. You will be in my prayers.
Peg and Family,
I am so sorry to hear about Jim. He was a wonderful man, who loved his wife, family and community so very much. It was an honor to work with Jim and his support during my husband and daughters challenge with cancer made him a precious friend. He called weekly to check on them and offer prayer and support. He was the BEST! He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this difficult time.

Dear Sweet Katie and family::
I am so sorry about your dad’s passing. Marie had told me and I saw it on facebook so had offered up prayers for all of you. It is so sad losing a parent. I will be remembering all of you. Keep the sweet memories of your dad in your heart and he will continue to be with you. I only met your mother one time but she impressed me very much. Come with Marie again and have a sandwich with me, always enjoyed your lunch visits. The children are adorable see their pictures on f.b some.
Love you, ‘granny’
Heather and family，
So sorry about your dad. We are praying for you all. Just remember that you all will see him again and that Jesus will comfort you as you go through this pain if you let Him.
We love you, especially Tucker.
Peg, I was so shocked to hear of your husband’s passing. I had no idea you had been going through such a rough time. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and I know that God’s love will sustain you as you journey into this next season of your life. Peace and blessings!
With our deepest sympathy to The Chamber Family. May god comfort you all at this sad time.

I was so sad to learn of Jim’s passing, he was my good friend and I will miss him. He was dedicated to our community and was a great Red Cross Director. He was always smiling and kidding me about going bare-footed – about 15 years ago – when we were in Leadership. I said – Jim, my feet hurt with shoes on. He always said it’s good you learned to wear shoes, we would hate to see the Mayor without shoes. He was my friend.
May God and your beautiful memories help carry you through this difficult time.
So saddened to hear of the loss of “Big Jim”. I hope you will all be comforted at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
To the family,
You have been on a long and arduous journey and now your loved one is at peace. May this be a time of happy memories and contentment as you go forward with your lives. Jim would want all of you to be strong and to face the future with smiles on your faces. It doesn’t make losing him any easier. Know that you have so many friends and family who care so deeply.
Ms. Peg and family, I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Please let me know if there is Anything that we can do for you. Tell the girls the same thing. We love you!!!
