    Sad to hear of Jim's passing. We had some really fun times together. I'm remembering the fun we had as the members of our biking bunch each turned 50! I always looked forward to Stubby's phone call saying he needed an "attitude adjustment", knowing he wanted to go ride the Harleys. Those were fun rides. I miss you my friend! My thoughts and prayers are with you, Debbie and family. Bob Schaaf

    I would like to express my condolences to the family and friends of James Stubblefield. There will come a time when death and mourning will be no more. (Revelation 21:3,4) This is what our loving God, Jehovah, has promised. We also have the hope of seeing our loved ones again. (John 5:28,29) May those verses bring you some comfort in your time of mourning.
