|Let the memory of James be with us forever|
"Tuesday marked one year since we lost you. I miss you as much today as the first day. I miss our talks. I miss your advice. I could come to you for anything and no matter how trivial it might be, you would sit down with me. I'll see you in heaven my hero. Love Lil Sis"
"Dearest Jim " To say I miss you is a considerable understatement! You had the patience of Job, the love for your family, friends, country & most importantly our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ of the apostle Paul. I will never forget our conversations sitting on your patio. Love, Gary"
"I have missed Jim everyday, every moment since he left us. We all love him so much and will continue to miss him. Jim's daughter Kim, left a beautiful tribute in the stories section. We look forward to meeting Kim & Brent's son, James Max, when he arrives this month."
"Dear Jim, it has been (almost) one year since God took you from this life to be with Him. You are so missed daily by Dee, your children, grandchildren and family members. Their love for you has never passed by one day. Rest forever in God's loving arms."
"In 2 days we will mark the anniversary of your passing. I often say " I can't do this" then I wake up and another day has passed. 363 to be exact. So I guess we are doing it. Hourly, daily, thinking of you every step of the way."
"Today as we celebrate our nations freedom I give thanks that you taught me how blessed we are to live in this great country. Your love of country as well as God and family is inspiring. Please view the bronze plaque commemorating Jim's service to our country."
"Be sure to read the story of Jim's birth by his sister Jeannie in the Stories section. Thanks Jeannie it's great."
"Yesterday was Jim's Birthday. He would have been 64. Happy Birthday my precious hero. I miss you so much. I love you.
"Happy Birthday Jim, a man who brought such love, joy and compassion to his family. You lived your 63 years to the fullest and left a lifetime of memories! Hope you are celebrating in grand style today!!"
"64 years ago you were born into this world and the hearts of many. Today we remember you my sweet bunny. But more important you were later born into the family of God, knowing that brings me great peace. Looking forward to that reunion feast."
"There are no words to describe how much you mean to me. I love you Daddy."
"Jim Borders, a wonderful husband and father. My friend Dee and Jim were truley a match made in heaven. A wonderful family. I am blessed for knowing you."
""Hey Papa: Thank you for being the person that you were. I miss you every day and I wish I had gotten the chance to spend more time with you when you were with us. I love you so much. Mery Christmas Papa Jim."
"While their are many "gifts of Christmas" I thank God for "The Gift of Christmas" Because of Jesus we have the promise of glorious life with our loved ones.(1Cor. 15:50-57 and 1Thess.4:13-18). Merry Christmas my love, untill we celebrate together again in Heaven."
"I would like to light a Christmas Candle, in memory of our wonderful, loved one, (my baby brother) Jim.
I know if he were here, he would encourage us with his little grin and would chuckle as he told us to put our problems in God's hands and everything will be bearable.
He handled a lot of problems that would seem impossible to most people, in this way. God gives us strength & hope."
"Hey Dad. So many things have happened lately. I keep wanting to pick up the phone and tell you about them. And now Christmas is here. Sometimes I think "this life is short, I can make it" and sometimes I think it's going to be so much longer than I can bear. I miss you Dad. There's no one I'll ever love like I love you. "I love you more" Love, Kim"
"Not a day goes by that I don't think about you Uncle Jim. I miss you like crazy and I kn ow I'll see you again!"
"We met Jim but 3 years ago and knew from the start he was an unusual man. Quiet, one who loved the Lord, wise, gentle and so much more. Jim, I (Al)will never forget the many special visits we had during your last six months. I always left renewed. You will never be forgotten. Al & Jean"
"Baby, I looked for you today. I think I saw you in the sweet hmmingbird feeding nearby. I heard your voice in the gentle breeze. I felt your tender touch as my heart embraced my memories of you. Now I am one day closer to being in your arms again. All my love forever, Honey"
"I miss my Dad. That is to be expected....I think about him every day, all the time. I am so thankful that I had a father like him. My life is so blessed because of him. I love you my sweet Daddy, I miss you so much."
"Until we meet again my beautiful big brother, my precious hero. I'll see you again in heaven....
""Just Remembering"; On a beautiful day, like today, Jim would have come home from church services, fired up his grill, preparing a nice casual meal while talking and visiting with family and friends, gathered on the patio.
(simple,good times we will always remember from a great friend and family member). Remembering with Love, Jean"
"Jim's smile encourages me. He was always smiling. Smiling through the pain. He never complained, just smiled."
"Jim Borders--now one of the Great cloud of witnesses,cheering us on as we run with perseverance the race marked out for us. (Heb. 12:1)"
"Special thanks to all of you for loving us, praying for us and supporting us through these days. We are equally as blessed to know you. Please be sure to read the stories of Jim.

"I love you Uncle Jim and I will always miss you!"
"I love you Kim and I am praying for your family. I am so sorry for your loss. Call me if you need anything."
"Although I never met Jim, I knew of his struggle for health and wish for Dee and the rest of his family to remember the healthy years and times shared together."
"My first memory of Jim Borders is of a tall, gentle man so in love with his hair dresser. That love drew Miss Dee and they became man and wife. My word for him then and now is DEPENDABLE."
"There is a song about a 'giant of a man who said little but was always there to help'; Jim naturally comes to mind. His smile was warm, pleasing, and comforting. I will miss him greatly."
"We were alway blessed to be with Jim. We always felt that we had been "sincerely touched" by a man of God when we were with him. There was something so affirming about him."
"I didn't know Jim well, but you couldn't miss the light in his eyes and his easy smile. Dee I can't tell you what your faith has shown me. You are a woman of grace."
"Jim will be missed by so many of us. He was such a kind, loving and gentle man. I feel very honored to have known him. The world needs more Jim Borders."
"I remember the first time I met Jim in Marco Island FL many, many years ago. Dee and him were so happy and very much in love. They really have had a very special love and relationship together."
"Dee was so blessed when Jim Borders came into her life. They were forever joined as ONE as they walked with God~ who has led them thru this journey."
"We will remember Jim for his quiet strength and sweet, gentle spirit. We feel blessed to have known him and to have been part of his life. He will always be remembered by us with love."
