Dear Velma and all the Doucette family:
Was saddened when I heard Jim went into the hospital coming to the end of this journey and then to hear of his passing. I will never forgot that smile and his laughter.. Honking the horn in the church parking lot and watching him jump and laugh. Sweet soul. As I thought about Jim the days he was in hospital I could hear him singing What a day that will be, When my Jesus I shall see. What a day that was when Jim entered over into eternity to hear Well done thy good and faithful servant. Love and Prayers to all the family.
