    I wish to express my sincerest condolences and also offer some HOPE from God’s Word since He is the God of all Comfort. (2Corinthians 1:3,4) In God’s Word we find the promise that we can be reunited with our loved ones. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15) The Bible tells us where this happy reunion will take place. (Psalms 37:10,11,29; Matthew 5:5) We are told why we die (Genesis 3:17-19; Romans 5:12) and that soon God will end death forever. ( Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3,4) I really do hope you can find comfort in these scriptures. If you would like to know more about this wonderful hope for the future please visit JW.ORG.

    My condolence to the Stanford family. I haven’t seen Jimbo in years. But, many fond memories from growing up in west Lynn. From Barry park hangin to high school, playing soft ball & trolling at Lynn & Nahant beach. Fond memory of my first time with Jimbo lobstering in Lynn harbor for dinner for the crew. Never forget parting Lynn woods.

    It was a great shock to several of Jim’s close friends here in the Gainesville area to hear of his death months later.We thought a great deal of this most kind, funny, and generous man. We are so sorry that we did not have the chance to pay our respects to the family in person. The world is a sadder place without Jimbo in it. Peace, friend.
