God needed a special angel that is why he called Jim. He will be missed by a long list of people. Even though he is no longer of the earth a piece of Jim will be every person's heart that had the privilege of knowing Jim. May his family feel comfort knowing that Jim is in heaven doing things he enjoys..probably has a kick ass Pony. Jim's light shines down upon his family everyday, and his light shines though them to those they love.
