  1. Rod and I are so sorry for your loss. Jim always was fun to talk to, we always “caught up” at the Labor Day Celebration each year. He is now in Heaven with others who love him too.

  2. On behalf of Greenview United, we express our condolences to the family and friends of Jim. May God comfort you during this time. Pastor Stephanie

  3. Our deepest sympathy to the Evers and Power families. The last time my Mom (Jenine Ridge)and I(Sharon Ridge) saw Jim we had the nicest chat about him and my Dad (Phil) going to a basketball game out of town and how much fun they had. It was always so nice to visit with him and catch up. Greenview has lost another wonderful person from our past.

  4. My deepest sympathy to the Evers and Power families. Jim was a good friend and was one of the nicest men I’ve known. He will be missed by so many people.

  5. My sympathies are to you, Andy, and family. My aunt and uncle were Marie and Albert Cordes. My family visited with the Evers and the Behrends in Greenview when I was younger. I remember going to the big house there by Greenview and visiting with the various relatives. I enjoyed visiting with your dad when I saw him but had not seen him in a long time. May God comfort you as only He can.

Leave your Condolence
