Jim was a special part of our tight-knit family at Harding. He was kind, bright, funny, and incredibly intellectual. Some of my fondest memories from my elementary, middle, and high school years involve classes and sports teams we were both a part of. This is a photo of our 8th grade basketball championship team. Jim will always be a brother of ours.
