Jim and I were born 11 months and 2 weeks apart during the depression. We were raised in Chickasha Ok. Since Jims death I have had new memories come to my mind everyday. Remember him being high school cheerleader and coming home from service in Hawaii with a convertible. We were both shocked to have a baby brother in High School. We soon decided to keep him.                                                                      Jim had mothers talent for writing and wrote lots of good things which are treasures now.                                                                                                              I told Jim many times he was mothers favorite he would say I know and laugh.                                                                                                                           We had lots of good conversations during hospice.                                                   Jim was always a kind and sweet person even as a child. I consider it a blessing to be his sister.                                                                                     Sadly because of physical problems  my husband and I cannot travel and will not be at his services.                                                                                      Knowing Jim was a very devout Christian and is in a much better place gives us peace.                                                                                                   LOVE YOU SWEET BROTHER.                                                                         Jerry and Bill

As Jim's brother I would like to express a true heartfelt loss to all of Jim's family, his wife, my nieces and nephews, all the grandchildren and great grandchildren, those from his business, charity, and friends.
Jim was my only brother and although he was fifteen years older than me and we lived most of our lives apart, he in Florida and me in California, Jim gave me many life lessons that I will never forget.  I feel so blessed that I got to see Jim as a father, brother, my boss in our family business, and a mentor in my life.  The way Jim lived his life as a father, family man, civic and charity leader set a good example, not to mention he was a good Catholic which was influential in me joining the Church a few years ago.  I treasure all the late night talks while he was in hospice care, especially the ones about his journey to meet the Lord and entering his Kingdom.  
My health and Joan's won't allow us to be at Jim's funeral, but know that he and all of you will be in our hearts and prayers.
With our love,
Jason and Joan Fell and family
