    Jim was a very special individual. I care for Jim when he was a patient at Davita, we had many talks and I also admired his artwork. He told many stories of his grandkids and show his artwork to all. He will be greatly missed by everyone he touched. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time.

    Dear Dad,

    Thank you for everything you meant to me! I will miss you – and I am so grateful for you and mom let me be a part of the family! I will never forget the time we had together – in Duluth at my senior year and when you and mom came to Norway for a visit. I will always lissen to Fiddler on the Roof – and think of you…. We had some really nice conversations – and you gave me knowledge I will bring with me for the rest of my life. Your memories will live on with me – and I see you and mom every day at my office on the picture I have.

    May he rest in peace!

    Colleen and family, I am deeply saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. I always looked forward to my visits with Jim in the dialysis unit. He always had a story to tell! At the forefront of the artwork in my house (we have a painter in the family!) is Jim’s painting of a row of buildings on a water scene. It is the first thing people see when we welcome them into our home, and I am always so proud to tell people, “My patient painted that…” I am even more grateful to have it now, because I always, always think of him when I look at it. God bless. I consider myself fortunate to have gotten to know him and consider him a good friend…
