My earliest memories of Uncle Jim are at the family Thanksgiving dinners at Grandma and Grandpa Corbin's house on Homewood. I remember, after Connie and Sean were born we would visit and watch Lawrence Welk and Hee Haw at their place. Uncle Jim liked to laugh :) Those were wonderful times in my childhood years. I look forward to the day I see Uncle Jim again along with the rest of our family that has passed.Dianne Cameron - October 13 at 9:38 AM
I have fond memories of my Uncle James from when I was growing up in Toledo. He was a very kind man and I know he will be greatly missed. Blessings to his family and friends.Kimberly Vogelsang - October 12 at 2:47 PM

Please include the 23rd psalm in the memorial service. He was a fine Christian man who loved the Lord and his family. We have many cherished memories of him which goes back to his childhood when I grew up with him and my other brothers and sisters. God Bless his entire family and friends.Gary R. & Helen M. - October 11 at 11:34 AM
