  2. Dearest Folger Family,

    You have my heartfelt sympathy in this difficult time. Jim Folger was such a wonderful person & touched so many lives in a truly positive way. I will miss his laugh & the times we all shared as neighbors & friends. I wish I could be with you as you celebrate his life.

  3. Tim, Sorry to hear of your loss. Karin and I will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. As always if you need anything,give us a call. Bill Pearson

  4. Todd,
    I am and have been saying prayers for your Father and your family. I asked God that your Dad was not fearful and his heart was full of love. I am so sorry for your loss.

  5. Dear Folger Family: I got to know Jim a little bit, and he was one heck of a strong man. God bless all of you during this time of immense grief. I know that the peace of Christ is with all of you. With you in spirit.

  6. Beth and Family:

    June, as we all called Jim, was to us a great cousin. We enjoyed many happy times with him, Eddy & Ebby, and Skip, Uncle Ebb’s son. June was a bit older than Elliott and I, but we always looked forward to his visits at the old homeplace on Pursley.

    Jim will be missed by all of us. We’ll all soon be together, never to part any more.


  7. Jim,

    I am sorry to hear about your loss. At this difficult time in your life, if you need anything, please don’t hesitate to call. While I never met your father, I am sure he was a big reason why you are the super person you are today. May you and your family find peace and happiness in the coming days.

    Michael Stuck

  8. Dear Janet, In listening to your prayers and your mother’s prayers, I know your faith in Christ will continue to sustain you. Christ is walking with you through this valley and the prayers of those who love you are flowing all around you. He will shelter you under His wing and hold you close. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness and we thank Him for His everlasting love and the hope He freely gives. LouAnn, Joan and Terry.

  9. We grieve with you and for you as you are temporarily separated from your Dad, but rejoice in the assurance that for a believer in Jesus Christ – to be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord.

    May God Comfort and Bless your family.

  10. Beth and Janet and all,

    My heartfelt love to you and the family. Though no words can lessen the human heartache now, my prayer is time will lessen the pain as you cherish the memories.

    Your unwavering faith is an example to all of us who witnessed it.

    Jim was a good man. He ran the good race. He has a wonderful legacy through his children.

    May Christ’s loving peace find a way to sooth your hearts, and be with you and yours.
    Love, Scott
