Jim was a cousin of mine. My dad was Albert Chase. I did not see him often, but when I did, I always enjoyed visiting and catching up. Thankful for the time that he spent with Aunt Peggy and for our last visit with him. Sending our deepest sympathy.

I am very sorry about Jim’s passing. The first 5 years of my life was spent with Jim and Patty at the farm on Key Ridge. Many fond memories of that time. Sadly their both gone. RIP

Jim and I were friends since I was in 8th grade and him a senior. We always thought we would be together. But life happens. He had a beautiful life and a family he adored, as did I. We always said third times the charm, maybe in the next life. R.I. P. my friend, you will always live in my heart.
