    We met Jim and Beverly in Pigeon Forge, TN.
    Chase encounter in our mind... but divine providence from God!! This SC couple found new friends that really feel more like “family”.
    Our hearts are broken for Beverly! So thankful for the many times Jim spoke of his faith and the excitement of going to Heaven. Looking forward to reuniting in Heaven with him in days to come! Love, love, love this couple! Prayers for Bev and all the family!

    I worked at Brunswick Correctional Center with Jim. He was a very nice person and he certainly will be missed. To Be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
    With Deepest to the Family.

    Married into the family. My husband is Jim's nephew. We will always treasure the memories and wisdom uncle Jim taught us. He came into Larrys life when he needed him the most after Nancy's passing. We are all forever blessed to have known and got to love him. Definitely will miss seeing him. Love you Aunt Bev and family ❤???

    I just learned of Jim's passing and this is sad news. As a kid that grew up in Brunswick county, I was active in Boy Scouts (Troop 221) and Jim was an excellent mentor and leader for a group of boys who were growing into men. He pushed me to do more in scouting, which has translated into the way I live today. He made me better. I often think back to camping and other scouting trips, and the amount of time he devoted to us. These are fond and indelible memories for me. Jim's life was one well-lived and one of impact. I hope Nathan, Jeffrey and Beverley are able to take comfort in the good life he led and knowing the impact he had on the people around him.
