You changed my life, I think about you so much youre my guardian angel, I hear your voice, I see your smile and I feel your presence in this truck. I love your laugh brother. I'll never forget rolling through the hills with you, I didn't spill your coffee.. so I think I did alright.. "it's a song and a dance" love you for how much you care and how much you taught me not just trucking, in every aspect of my life. I came to your class a boy and left a man through the things you taught me. God bless you

Happy Birthday Jim. There is hope everywhere we look, even in those dark ominous clouds that we can almost reach out and touch. What a great day when we will all be reunited. Everyone praise the Lord God, He is at the door.

While the world becomes more crazy, we know that you and Betty are safe and secure with the Lord God. "Absent from the body, present with the Lord." There seems to be more clouds and they are a little lower than ever before. We are watching with anticipation. Happy Birthday Brother.

It's May the 8th. Happy Birthday Jim. You may be gone from us physically, but in every other way you are right here with us, you never left. We are still looking to the clouds for the Lord Jesus Christ, like you said to do.

We miss you every day Jim. It's not the same without you, but it won't be long before we are reunited. Yes, as you said, look to the clouds for it won't be too long. Lord God, grant those of us still here to be able to hang on with your strength until we see You in the clouds and those who You have already called up. Amen and Amen.

My Brother

Shared by Randy Cockerham on July 9, 2016

Whenever Jim was around you knew that laughs and a good time were coming. He brought laughter, smiles, and fun to many people. However, he also had a very serious side which I saw many times. He understood pain and difficulty and could easily become humble and understanding. In an emergency he was the best. He knew exactly what to do and could take charge with great responsibility. He was a great example to others and to me, his much younger brother. While suffering from a concussion I fainted and fell on the floor one morning, my mother screaming for Jim who came running with a blanket, picked me up and stayed with me until the Doctor arrived at our house. He was the reason that I wanted to join our local volunteer fire department. In the month that I joined, he had married Betty and taken on a new job, so he left the fire company. It was as if he was handing that part of his life over to me, to continue on. Every time I walk into our fire station I think of Jim and all that he did. For now, he is gone physically, but oh yes...he is very much still here. I feel his presence most all the time. One of the last things he said to me was, "Keep looking to the clouds," a reference to the Lord God coming soon, so soon that He is in the clouds above us. I am watching the clouds...see you soon brother.
