We remember all the practice runs Jim did in prep for the Appalachian Trial hike. He had such a passion for that project. He always had a friendly hello as we met on our walks around the lake. He and Carolyn were truly a integral part of our lake community. So glad that his family will continue his legacy here at Lake Tam.. May you sense the Lord's comfort and peace during this difficult time. You have beautiful memories to carry with you forever.
