I'm so sorry to hear about Mr. Jim. I didn't know till I read obituary in the paper.
We met Mr Jim when my daddy, Jim Fairfield, was admitted to the nursing home in Clinton. They all welcomed Daddy by letting him join them at their dining table. Mr Jim was always joshing with daddy about cars, fishing and hats! They'd point fingers at each other and carry on. We'd occasionally join them for a meal and got so attached to the men that became daddy's new friends at this stage in their life. I've shared with my siblings as they would come and visit and also enjoyed visiting with Mr Higgins.
May Our Lord comfort each one of you. He will be remembered fondly within the Fairfield family. After daddy's passing mom & I enjoyed going back and visiting.
Love & Prayers, Diane Fairfield Hennessee

I met Mr. James as a housekeeper at Ozark Health. He was always smiling and joking with me. Laughed so hard when I got locked out, trying to fill his bird feeder. Rest In Peace, Mr. James. ❤️
