To the Grigsby Family I’m so sorry for your loss. What a big man with a great big heart he was. I feel so privileged to have known him for the short time I did compared to some. I saw what a great loyal friend he was to those who knew him well and welcoming he was to those who were new. May Jehovah continue to provide you comfort in feeling the love of all of your friends and family as we await His wonderful promises for our future.

Dear Sharon and Family, We were so shocked and saddened to learn the news of Jim’s passing. There are no words to adequately express the sorrow now and there are no words that will express our joy when our loved ones are returned to us by our loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah. Jim had a sure hope in the Bible’s promises and we look forward to the fulfillment of those promises. We have so many good memories of Jim and your family and pray for your peace of mind and heart. Bruce and Sandra Pancoast

Jim was my dear father-in-law. To quote my husband, you were much more than just a father, you were a good teacher and best friend, reliable and always there whenever he needed you. I am forever grateful to you because I have a husband with a great big heart just like his dads'. Thank you Jim and love to all my Grigsby family. We will see you soon in the New World to Come. Revelation 21:3 - 5. Rita
