Memories Timeline


  1. Dad, you were there through good and bad loving all of us no matter what. We love you and miss you!

  2. So many good memories of dear Jim. From the 1950’s when he wanted to play basketball with his big brother’s new wife, to the time when he met Eileen and was so enchanted and in love, to the time in 2004 to 2007 when he would drive over from Ft.Worth to just keep in touch and have lunch with me. He will be missed and he was loved by many. I will rejoice when I meet him again in our loving Father’s house in heaven.

  3. Dear Eileen and family,
    I am so sorry to hear about Jim’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I wish I would of known Jim but from what I’ve heard about him he was an amazing guy! May memories help you always smile! May you find comfort in God’s love!
    God Bless,
    Carrie Schierschmidt
