In the short 12 month period I have known Jim as a public defender colleague, I grew to love and respect his wit, intellect, and charm. He was a lawyer's lawyer. No matter how overwhelmed I felt, he would always have a word to lift my spirit. I have missed him since he left us here in Monroe, and am certain I'll truly miss him more. Darn you Jim for leaving me with all these case. My prayers and deepest sympathy go out to the Lewis family. May God keep and sustain you, now and forever.

Marilyn and Beau: Jimmy was always a special person. You were not around him long before he had you laughing and enjoying being in his company. We can just imagine that he asked God: "This is so beautiful! Why did you keep me on earth so long?" Our prayers are with you.
