  • I am so sorry. I just found out. Jim was always the life of the party. Even though I hadn't seen Jim in a few years I will miss him. We were all one big happy family, back in the day!

  • Jim was always full of it... life, love, good humor, anything positive you could say about a person. He was always extremely gracious and made sure to express his gratitude to everyone involved in his care. His bright spirit will be truly missed. I wish I had gotten to see him again before he passed and tell him how much happiness he brought to those around him. His sisters are wonderful human beings who were always there for him. Sending love and thoughts of comfort to the entire family. We will all be laughing with Jim up in heaven one day! -Halley White, University of Kentucky Transplant Center
