Betty, Justin, and Derick, Sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. It is so sad to lose someone we love and care about but there comes a time when the quality of life far outweighs the benefits. He was such a friendly and outgoing guy and always greeted me with a big smile. May you all find peace and keep on, keeping on. That is what he would want for all of you. Rest in peace BIG JIM.
