I felt a sadness this morning reading that Jim had passed away. I always enjoyed the minutes that I would spend talking to him while he sat in the very last pew in our beloved St. Patricks. Very few people would know that it was Jim that was always the first in Church Sunday morning to turn on the lights, unlock the doors and turn up the heat. He once told me his story of being in a foxhole in the pacific fighting the Japanese where he asked Jesus to get him home safe, in return he would attend Church every Sunday. Jesus brought him home so that he could fulfill that promise. Rest in Peace Marine.....You earned it.
