Hello love, you would be 62 today and you are forever missed. I know you now have Ruby, Nacho, & Penny so you are not lonely. I still think of you all the time especially the good times and there were many. Happy Birthday to you this 2-18-19.

Today is the 7th anniversary of your passing. Never to be forgotten, sweets. Thanks for being so good to all of us. Ruby is not well, you may be getting her soon. Take care of her for me.

Hi sweets, Now six years have passed and you are not forgotten. I hear one of our favorite songs and wish so hard I could have one last dance with you. I know God is taking good care of you for us. Please know you are missed and loved forever. I still have your Ruby Baby, but she's getting very gray.  Love Ruthie

Wow, I can't believe it's been 5 years since you left me. You are missed and always will be. We lost Nacho this year, and you became a Grandpa for the second time. Be blessed sweets!

Hi dad,
I think of you often. You and Mom. It's hard sometimes to face that you both are gone. You have a new grandson, Almost born on your b-day. I like to think that God pulls back the curtain sometimes, just for a brief moment, to let you guys look down on us. If I've learned anything from death, it's to love while you can, and to the fullest. I love you and I miss you.
Love ,
Your "kiddo" Bridget Helen

Happy Birthday Sweets! Lots of changes since you left. We have a new Papa. He's just what you picked for us and nearly perfect. Such a good one to take over where you left off. Ruby, Penny, Nacho are all just fine but Ruby still misses you and cuddles with Jon to make it better. We feel so lucky to have had you to set the bar for us. You did good babe! Waiting to dance with you again someday!

Hi honey, thinking of you and your birthday coming next Tuesday. Thank you for being my special angel and making me so happy again. I truly wish we could have grown old together but it wasn't meant to be. I have Jon now, we will marry in Dec. He is really wonderful and I love him very much. It was a long and lonely 4 yrs. I will always love you. Happy Birthday sweets.

Thanks to my wonderful friend/sister for putting Jim's voice mail recording on his memorial. Thank you Mel! I love you for that! It brings many of us comfort when needed.

Friends: Go to Gallery and then Audio. Click on Jim's recording. My friend Melanie Mancera put his work phone message up on this site. I hope it brings you comfort like it does me. RIP big Jim...you are still loved.

Jim, today marks the third anniversary of your passing and I can't believe so much time has passed. Thanks for the memories and for still comforting me. I am doing well and am blessed once again with another great love. RIP babe.

Today you would have been 56. Happy Happy Birthday Baby! You are so missed and loved.
Posted by Ruthie Brunt on February 10, 2013
Hi Babe, your birthday is in 8 days and you are really on my mind. You would be 56. Being back home reminds me daily of how much I miss you. I have so many wonderful memories of us here. Thank you for so many wonderful years with you. I love you,,,still!

I cried when you passed away,
I still cry today.
Although I loved you dearly,
I couldn’t make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke my heart to prove
To me, he only takes the Best.
          All my love babe…

Two years seems like forever. You are truly missed. I still think about you everytime Mary and I talk about Disneyland. So many things have changed.....but not the heartfelt love and memories carried by so many who miss you.
Posted by Melanie Mancera on June 24, 2012
Jimmy, it's been 2 short but so very long years. The lakes here miss you catching the fish. I miss your smiling face as you would drive by my house when I was outside of vice versa. I know you watch over Ruthie and please keep doing that until she meet on the dance floor with you again.
Posted by Peggy Stark on June 20, 2012
Jim, Ruthie said yesterday it has now been two years since you left. It doesn't seem possible and I'm sure it seems like forever to Ruthie.But know that you are missed and loved by many.
Posted by Bridget Brunt on February 18, 2012
Happy birthday dad. I miss you and Love you so much. You are always in my heart.
Posted by Ruthie Brunt on February 17, 2012
Happy 55th babe. I still have a hard time believing your gone so soon. The dogs and I are not the same without you and never will be. I will be moving back home soon and closer to you again. I know you will be with me all the way as you are now. Still loving you ..... til I waltz again with you.....
Posted by Dorothea Channell on February 17, 2012
Happy Birthday Jim. Miss you and have many memories. I miss you and will miss Ruthie a lot when she moves back home. Guess I'll just have to visit Texas!

Jimbo, we miss you very much. Took time for me to write this tribute. We will always remember the wonderful times we had with you and Ruthie. I can still see you and Ruthie tearing up that dance floor, and all of us bowling and going to the UTEP football and basketball games. We will see you again one day dear friend. We love and miss you.

I miss seeing you out work all of us Jim.Or giving me good tips at work.You made a huge impact on my life, and I am grateful.You will be missed forever. Rest in peace Jimmy Ray, rest in peace.
Posted by Melanie Hansen on June 25, 2011
I've thought of you many, many times over the last year. Simple things like an Elvis song, an old John Wayne movie, or a fishing show on TV would remind me of you. I wish my kids could've had their Pop a little longer. We miss you.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you and Ruthie. Our time to get to know one another was brief, but you made an impression. You settled in and became part of us. Till me meet again.
Posted by James Brady on June 23, 2011
Jim, we didn't get to know each other for very long but you made a big impression. I truly thank you for your help and talking to me about different task at work. Because of that, I made CFT a couple weeks ago. You told me I was your Project, I reall

Hey babe, I am thinking of you today and wishing you were here. I pray you are fishing somewhere and happy as you can be. The dogs and I are missing you so much. RIP Honey!

Miss you Jimmy - you big huggie bear! So enjoyed your visits here at our house. You were very special to our family - you are missed very much. Love Karen & Rose
Posted by Glenda Sutton on June 5, 2011
Whenever I would call to speak to Ruthie and you answered we always had a conversation you didn't just put her on the phone. I enjoyed those times to have a laugh, talk about current events, what you were up to. I miss that.

Gone from Earth too soon. We all miss you and cling to our happy memories of your kind spirit and love for us all. Your presence in our lives gave me peace, knowing Mom was surrounded by your love. You took wonderful care of her. Your memory warms

All the pictures of you with Ty and Camille are bittersweet to see. I am grateful for the time we all had with you and for all the fond memories of a kind and wonderful man who gave his heart to us.

For the many who love you and miss you, may the peace of Christ fill their hearts.

"Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give peace to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid." John 14:27

Daddy, I miss you more than words can explain. I call your phone from time to time to hear your voice, but nothing brings me comfort like knowing I will see you again. You are forever in my heart and memories. I love you so much daddy. Kiddo-

Jim - you danced with your ruthie like a feather dancing in the wind....you were one on the dance floor effortlessly whirling around while gazing into each other eyes. I understand why you would not dance with no other! Jim - miss you
Posted by Melanie Mancera on June 2, 2011
Jimmy, fishing will never be the same. I would look forward to my morning hug at tournaments or at the meetings. I'm sure you are fishing in heaven. You were a great person and are greatly missed. I miss waving to you on your way home from work.
Posted by Rhonda Seelmeyer on June 1, 2011
What an honor to have known Jim. He was a wonderful, kind hearted person, and touched many lives. May he rest in peace.

Jim was such a good neighbor that I called him at 10:30 P.M. from the beach to see if I remembered to close my garage door!
Posted by Beth Morse on June 1, 2011
My two two year old grandaughters wanted to trick-or-treat Jim last Halloween "cause he let's us pick" (a handful). I explained as gently as possible that Jim was gone. Bella said "I'm going to miss Jim". Now they get their suckers from "Roofie" xox
Posted by Julie Lees-Zoucha on June 1, 2011
Jim, you were a man of few words, but had a Texas sized heart. I think of you often especially when I hear something about fishing or Disneyland. You are missed but someday we will all be together again. I can't wait to see you and Ruthie dance!
Posted by Lucy Cook on May 31, 2011
Jim, I never had the pleasure of meeting you this side of heaven, but I know I'll recognize you once there. You'll be with a woman who was one of the kindest, most loving women on earth. She'll be smiling & eternally thanking God for His gifts. One o

This year has gone by but the memories will not be gone, will always remain fresh. I remember when I watched you make worms in the garage, bar-b-que'ng, that one day at the golf course and of course the garage sale just before your passing. Many mor

Jim, as I reflect on the past year without you in my life, I realize that time has only made me miss you more. You are not forgotten babe, nor will you ever be. I sure miss those big loving arms. Til I waltz again with you...
Posted by Ruthie Brunt on April 12, 2011
Heaven has an angel like no other....I miss you Babe!
You said I was your third marriage, but your first wife. I cried when you told me that on our first anniversary. What a compliment. I will treasure those words forever. I loved being your wife
