Mr. B. You where the example of how a man should behave when I had no example to follow. A friend to my Mother, a mentor to me. You taught me accountable, and humility. I could live a hundred lifetimes and never repay all you've done for me and my family. God blessed us with a friend like you, and I pray you found peace with him! Thank you! A million times Thank you!

I will miss you so much. You were my best friend for so long and I would not have been able to make it through the roughest times in my life without you. You and Peg were so special, so kind, so selfless and so much fun to be with. We would have been up to see you in May if we didn't have to deal with Covid 19. I am heartbroken that we didn't get to do that. Now we will have to be content with the fond memories of times spent together. This picture was the first time you and Peg came to Florida to visit. One of many trips. Until we meet again my friend, I will always, always remember you both. Our condolences to Debbie, John, Michelle, Tammy and Jimmy. . I pray for your strength and God's comfort in the days to come.

What can I say? Jim & Peg were a daily part of our lives when we moved there in 1977. Daily coffee, conversations, playing pool, board games, fishing, hiking, camping, vacations, fixing stuff, South Lake projects, etc. They were there for the birth of each of our children and were Godparents to our son Kurt. Our hearts were broken when they moved, again when Peg passed in 2018 and now for the final time. I brought Jim up to our place in 2019 and we reminisced for days, never running out of memories. Rest my friend and hold a place at the table for us. All of love, John & Cathy
