Jim
Words are few. Thoughts are deep. Memories of you are ours to keep. So suddenly you were taken and we could not say good bye.
But we have our memories that we will keep for all time.

In the summer of 1983 Jim and I did a working holiday through NSW, Victoria and S.A. In his youth Jim was rock solid in the things that matter most and despite the ups and downs of life, the joy and the sorrow that never changed. "no regrets when the sun go-eth down"
Take care Andrea special thoughts going your way tonight.

We enjoyed getting to know Jim and Andrea when they visited us in Colombia recently. Jim was quiet, but rock solid. Maybe "a godly" man" would sum up how he impressed us. He'll be missed, but it's Heaven's gain, and his.

Dear Folks, so many meaningful and precious thoughts and memories, so much love.
Like his Mum and Uncle Frank, Jim couldn't manage heights so well. He worked for us doing building in the late 1970s at Bathurst but not so easy when he needed 2 hands to firmly hold a ladder and still have to carry a plank of timber up! We valued his quiet but determined spirit naturally and spiritually. Now Jim has "climbed the heights where others through their faithfulness have been" holding firmly, and carrying his load with sincere faith, trust and a grin.
Jim is an encouragement. To know him was to love him.
Special thoughts of love and comfort to all.
Terry and Kath (Lawry) Grabham, Parkes NSW.

A sudden loss is hard to come to terms with. Our Heavenly Father knows the pain that broken earthly ties bring.
May you know His comfort.
