    Mr. Jim was such a kind man. I have had the pleasure of knowing him & Mrs Mickey until she passed away for 40+ years. I don’t think I have ever heard an unkind word spoken by him. He always had a friendly smile for us and we loved him dearly. We are so saddened to see that Mr. Roley passed away. I know Mrs Mickey has met him at the pearly gates and they are together again. And maybe the family can find a little peace in that thought, knowing that. Our thoughts and prayers
    are with all Mr Jim’s family & friends. God bless you all in this difficult time.
    We will miss him.
    With love,
    Julie & Mr Jim’s Century Pharmacy family
