Joanie and family, Jim was a good man, but then you know that. He was a good neighbor and friend and had a very beautiful heart. He knew how to listen, and always had time to give you good advise and a smile. Our friendship was not nearly long enough, and his absence will forever leave a big hole in our hearts. It was an honor and a privilege to call him friend. I am so very sorry for your loss. Know that you are not alone. Love, family and friends will get you through this. Sending love and comfort to you and your family. Love, Mike and Tina Kastning
