Judy and family, We are so sorry to hear about Jim. I worked with him at the Aitkin Sheriff's office. I couldn't have asked for a nicer man to work with. He was so helpful to me and all that worked there. You are all in our prayers. God bless.

Judy & family- Jim & I have been friends since we were kids and our folks were members of the Glen grange. Nothing I say will make you feel better, try to remember the good times you had with Jimmie Joe ( As I remember him) like I will. We now live in Pearland, TX. but owned the Peterson farm in Glen until selling it about Three years ago. Our thoughts are with you.

Really didnot know Mr Jim to-very well Talked a little in common things about the war, Both mail handlers, military organizations S O Dispatching, very calm man on the radio and then of course the dances @ L.L.Barn and the old 1946 Studabaker Dump truck He purchased from me with the fo rd V-8 engine (It would do wheelys) He laughted. Reads like he had a very active life Memorys are gone but never forgotten. With deep regrets Jack

Sandra Stang
I will always remember looking forward to coming up to the farm when I was a little girl to ride your horse Queeny.You never minded taking the time to let this little girl have so much fun. I also remember how you always called me Sandra Dee. Then there was the time you played Santa and I noticed you had on a ring just like my Uncle Jimmy, I wonder how that happened, ha ha. As I got older we spent time together riding my horses Tanger & Goldie. I have so many wonderful memories of the time we spent together and I will always love you!! Mark and I had such a great time with you and Aunt Judy last year when we stopped in to see you. The stories kept coming and what started out as a quick visit turned into a couple hours of laughter and reminiscing. I will always treasure that last visit. Your niece, Sandy

Darlene Seibert
