    I am so sorry to just learn, Mr. Jim passed away.
    What a wonderful Christian man of God. I was associated with him, and his family through my father, Ernie Bowman.
    I was very blessed to receive several of his wood pieces,
    and he was so very talented. I will always remember the cookouts, at his house, and all the good memories.
    My thoughts and prayers for his wife, and family.
    May God surround you with tremendous peace, and comfort
    that will sustain you. God will see you through these difficult times.
