So Sadden to find that Jim has passed. I worked for Jim at a Branson resort when I first moved to Branson in 1998. He was a great person and boss. Everyone enjoyed having Jim as a boss. Today, a thought of one of Jim's funny construction stories came to mind which prompted me to see if he and the family were still in the area. Very sadden at my findings. Jim spoke very lovingly of his family. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jim's wife Marcia and family. Bless you all.

There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of of my brother. His sense of humor, corny jokes, pranks and how he could laugh at himself and was so laid back.
I miss my phone ringing, picking it up and hearing his voice at the other end. Or when he would leave me a voicemail that would always follow my voicemail instructions in a funny way. lol
I miss the wonderful fun we would have going to funny shows, Silver Dollar City and so many other cool places! Then going to some favorite restaurant of his or a neat out of the way place he’d found.
He is missed and loved deeply. ❤️

I knew Jim from the time my husband and I lived in DeKalb- back in the early 90's. What a great guy! He was a very loving and kind person. While my husband was in college he worked for Jim. Jim was always willing to teach us about whatever we needed help with. Plumbing, electrical, construction, automotive. He was truly a jack of all trades.
I am so sad to learn about Jim's death. May he rest in peace, and may his family know that he helped a couple of struggling newlyweds to become the people they are today.

Sycamore Pumpkin Festival

Shared by Rhonda Collette on April 17, 2016

I was 8 years old the first time my brother, Jim, swung me over his shoulders as we watched the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival Parade, 1972. It was the most exciting thing I had ever seen! Earlier that day, we had walked the busy streets of Sycamore visiting all of the food venders, and walking the courthouse lawn looking at exhibits and pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and designs. As the fire truck sirens screamed loudly, so did I! I laughed wildly as I plugged my ears and screamed with excitement at the noise and the crowd! Soon candy was being thrown to the crowd and Jim, being a good sized guy, bulldozed his way to the front of the crowd! I was laughing so hard I nearly fell off his shoulders. I remember I had one leg still across his back and the other just dangling. I could not stop laughing. He hollered, "Come on Bucky, grab some candy!" At the time I hated that name, but now...not so much. Afterwards, with my belly full of hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, hot cocoa, and goodness knows what else, we walked and walked until we came to his car, and I was out like a light before we even made it a few streets. What a day!

Psalm 23

Shared by Family of James Westerman... on April 14, 2016

1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
