Jim, Mary and their children were neighbors of ours when we lived on Itasca.

Prayers are going out to the family.

I am saddened at the loss of a favorite cousin. Jim was a unique person with a generous heart, and a good listener. All of us Garber's are going to miss him tremendously. Our prayers are with his family, which Jim loved so deeply. Our memories of Jim will stay very vivid in our minds.

Jim is my brother-in-law by marriage. He is a kind and generous person. I have visited him many a time on my vacations in Rhinelander. I admire him for his strength the past years. I will miss not being to visit with him on my next trip.

He will be missed by many.

Mary, Joel, Jessica and Jay you are in our thoughts and prayers.
