He especially loved his two dogs, Kiki and Max, and JoJo who passed away recently.

Jim will be remembered by all as a kind, caring gentleman. Due to the Covid 19 crisis, services are restricted to the immediate family but you can view the virtual celebration of life by going to www.facebook.com/LUMCDallas even if it is after the service. An open memorial will be planned for sometime in the future. In lieu of flowers, you may send offerings to Lakewood United Methodist Church or Operation Kindness.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
