Dear Betty and Jim's family,
Francis and I were deeply saddened to hear of Jim's passing. Please accept our condolences and know you are in our prayers. We will miss his dry wit and sense of humour. He was a big part of our church family as an elder, member of session, chair of the Finance Committee and singing in the choir for many years. Jim will be missed by many.
Francis and Janet LeBrun
