Jim's passing came as quite a shock to me. We met in 7th grade. We were the same age, well, nearly he was 6 months older. Jim was sweet on me and we hung out quite a bit. Then I came around and grew very fond of him. He was one I consider to be a good friend. We had other friends in common and tried a bit to stay in touch. Several yrs went by and our lives took different paths. Jim was a special kind of person. I live with autism and he acted like I was just a regular gal. Even so. He had a way of making you feel special and included. I will always remember this about him. We did run into each other some yrs back now. He seemed happy, talked of his family etc. We we're both at the Dallas hospital but I remember that we were both there to comfort and be a help to someone else in or lives. I am praying for his family. Jesus I ask right n in your mighty and matchless name that you comfort J G's family. Bring them peace and health help them Lord to go through this time in a healthy and whole way. Minister to them now Lord I pray in Jesus Holy Name. Amen! Your forever friend Sabrina..
