  • Scott Volz

    I knew Jim before he meant Kristen and Alex and knew he was happy and a good man. The Jim I meant after he became a husband and father was extremely happy and exceptional man. I have never meant a father and husband more committed to his family and their happiness. It was so sad when Jim got sick but such an inspiration the way he fought and excepted his illness. Thank you Jim for teaching me how to be a good husband, a good father and a better man. Thank you for being a part of my family, Kristen and Alex’s life. You will never be forgotten and will live forever in our hearts.
