We are extremely saddened by your loss. We will always have very fond and Blessed memories of times spent together at church, potlucks, and especially camping and rafting. You both shared your smiles and always uplifted everyone around you. Marty and Jim are mentors in every aspect of life (love, kindness, and friendship) living examples of what a true Christian is. We will miss that infectious grin that Jim always wore. Love in Christ, Ferrell's
