Vickie and Jim's entire family I'm so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Jim was not only my banker, but he was one of my best friends for many many years. I'm sending prayers up to God asking Him to wrap his arms around Vickie and the entire family to help you make it through this most difficult time. RIP Jim. Darlene
