    I remember playing music with Jimmy at my cousin Tom Troia’s house in Bellevue many years ago. It was always a fun time when we all got together. May he rest in peace!

    My happiest days as a kid were when the cousins would come to visit Grandpa Raymond and Grandma Gladys Rains home in Washington, Iowa. We always had a great time. I almost forgot that we visited Raymond, Connie, and the kids in Massachusetts, Bellvue Nebraska, and McCallen Texas. Rest in Peace Cousin Jim

    We are so, so sorry to find this out on April 1. So many of us in Lincoln who spoke with him daily are in terrible grief. He was a Vietnam era Army veteran, Astronomy Club of Lincoln member. Retired from the Nebraska State Dept of Roads, retired instructor at Kaplan and Lincoln School of Commerce; retired from the Center for People in Need as director of the computer lab. Oh, Jim! I wish we would have known of your funeral. The last time you spoke with us was on March 16. May the souls of the faithfully departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace. You will be missed.
