    So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I am Melba's step brother and got to meet Jim when he stopped by our home in Alice to see Melba. I knew when I met him way back around 1960-61 that he was a great guy and I wish that I could have visited with him more often. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and may your faith in our Lord and Savior sustain you during this difficult time.
