Jim’s faith was strong and this was his favorite devotional from Pastor Chuck Smith, dated November 8th personalized for Jim, loving husband, father , grandfather, great grandfather & friend.

2 Timothy 1:10 Our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death & brought life & immortality to light through the gospel.

Jim has simply moved out of this world, out of an old worn out tent and into eternity into a beautiful mansion prepared for him. A building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens (2 Corinthians 5:1) So please don’t weep for me, because you know I’m not weeping. I’m with Jesus my glorious Savior. In His presence is fullness of joy, at His right hand are pleasures for evermore (Psalm 16:11) God wants fellowship with you, & He sent His Son Jesus to abolish death in order that you might have eternal life and immortality through Him.

Serving the Lord & sharing the gospel was one of Jim’s greatest loves.
