Skeena Taxi will remember Jim as one of their drivers, but Jim’s love for music was always his passion and this is where Jim would shine. Jim wrote some beautiful songs and was a gifted singer and guitar player. A busker on the streets of Prince Rupert for many years and also in the Comox Valley; Jim had a tender soul, and could bring many to tears with his music. Thank you to all the people of Prince Rupert who were so giving, caring and kind to Jim, this made Jim’s world a brighter place to be.
“Love you are the Author, you showed your love to me, you gave me peace of mind Lord, you helped my eyes to see.”
“Love you are the Answer, for people everywhere, in your Son you have given the answer to our prayers.” (lyrics from Jim’s song)
Jim is now fully healed and at peace. Jesus said,”I am the resurrection and the life, he that believes in me though he were dead, yet shall he live. John 11:25
