    My heart is broken. We called him Bill here in Texas. He’s my first cousin who I spent countless hours with in my childhood and teen years. And have so many fond memories. My heart goes out to Shirley and all the kids. And of course Eddie as well. Love to all.

    Shirley & family: Ronnie and I are so sorry about Jim. I know how hard losing a spouse is. I lost mine 27 years ago. Please know you have been in my prayers and we are thinking of you. Love you, Marsha Hedglin & Ronnie Aldrich

  7. So sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. We were friends in the service when we were both stationed at Whiteman AFB. We had a lot of fun times tooling around in his Cuda and drinking a few beers. Haven’t seen him since the service but did converse with him via Facebook a while back. He mentioned some medical issues but I didn’t know it was that serious. Please pass my condolences on to his entire family. May he rest in peace.

  8. I knew James at Boerne HS, a great guy and a friend to all. My condolences to Shirley and the family.

  9. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
