    Pat, I worked with you and Jim at the Westview Bowling Lanes back in the late 70’s, and I have thought of you and Jim often. The relationship that you and Jim shared was one of the best I had ever seen….you could tell how much love was shared between you two. I always thought of Jim as one huge teddy bear of a man, with a great laugh and a kind heart. I hope your boys will follow in their dad’s footsteps….he was a wonderful man and touched a lot of lives. May God be with you and your family until you see him again.
    Kindest Regards,
    Peggy Johnson Mcrae

    My prayers are with your family. He was one of the nicest men I ever met. Sorry for your loss.

  10. Haigood was my first training officer when I started at the jail. He was also a great supporter for me throughout my career. Recently, we saw each other frequently at the Hillcrest Oncology center. Missed him the first part of this month. Many accomplishments in his career; he will be missed. Haigood: you fought a good fight, you served your country and your community well. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you.
