If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.

Your friendship through the years, your love for God and His Word, your encouragement to others, your smiles even amidst sorrow, pain or tears,
your help, Ginny, to my dear Mother when it was so needed, and the kind-heartedness of you and Jim and the family you raised--these are memories that are treasured.

For 40 years it has been our pleasure to count Jim and Ginny and their kids among our close friends. Lots of fond memories----Christmas dinners, visits, birthdays, etc. We will surely miss our friend, Jim, but we can rejoice in the knowledge that Jim is with the Lord in Heaven and that we will see him again someday. We thank the Lord for his friendship. Lovingly, Gene and Sherrie Johnson

How wonderful it has been to know Jim and Ginny over the years We have loved them both dearly as part of our own family. Jim will be sorely missed but in a much better place now with the Lord. And Ginny will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

Thank you Lord that we had the chance to know Jim here. He and Ginny have always been an encouragement to us and the things that we are doing for your kingdom here in the Philippines. We ask that you would continue to walk with the family. Amen.

When my Dad died, Jim had a dream about my Father going to heaven and he shared it with my family. We were all so glad and grateful to hear about this dream and now we are certain that Jim is in heaven with Dad. It is wonderful to know that Jesus was so important to Jim and that he is now living a new life with our Lord.

When in high school, I would call to talk to "Jim". Many times, after I had talked for about 5 minutes and finally paused for a breath, I would hear..."I think you want to talk to my son." You would think I would learn after one time but no! He was always gracious to me anyway. I will miss his quick smile and seeing how much he adored his family.
