    Thoughts and prayers for all of you. There was never a time when I reached out to Jim for "lock help" that he did not go out of his way to be of service--always so very helpful and just a very nice man to visit with. Our heartfelt condolences.

    rich Sommers on Oct 11, 2019

    Jim and I grew up together in Andrew. We were first cousins, however, Jim and I were like brothers. Jim was 6 months older, and I wanted mom to lie, so I could go to school with Jim..
    That of course, did not work. Jim decided in grade school that he wanted to go into the navy, which he did. The navy was something Jim did not like, and was glad to get out.
    We kept in touch all these years, and each time we got together, we had a reminded story to bring up, with a lot of laughs.
    Jim, you will be missed and thought about for years to come.
    From one veteran to another, I RENDER YOU A FINAL SALUTE.

    Cousin Rich Sommers

Fun times at Manderscheid's in Andrew, all the card parties, fire department events, and so many more. Jim was a great man and a better friend. Pretty sure he had the key to unlock heavens gate.
