I am so sorry to the Moore family for your loss. I grew up with all 3 of the Moore boys, and I love the whole family. I have lots of wonderful memories of things we did when our families got together. I loved the things I read about Jim and what a wonderful Dad and Grandparent he was, and it was no surprise to me with the way he was raised from his parents Jim and Virginia. I know he will be greatly missed, my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Julie

Beth Ann and all of the Moore Family, I was so saddened to hear of your loss. Playing sports with Jim at THS and just knowing him throughout our years of being a grade apart he was always just a great guy to be around. May God bless you & comfort you in these trying times!
