  10. Dear Janet and Family,

    My name is Tom Cully (Nottingham, UK}, Here I am at 4 am Friday 31 Dec 21
    just browsing the internet and input Jim’s name in my search box and lo and behold I find that a dear old Christian friend from my RAF days in Australia has passed into Glory. Sincere condolences to you Janet and your family. I did love to hear Jim pray – he seemed so in touch with the Lord and ‘carried off’ into his prayer realm that it was a joy to hear him pray. I’ll always remember his smile. One story he told remains with me. One day he had been out with his mother (shopping) and they parted company – but she spotted Jim and called out to him ‘Yo ho Duckie – over here’ – he truly must have been very embarrassed that day because he was a very reserved chap back then!!

  11. Hello, I don’t.know if this will get to you..I think Jim’s wife is my cousin from NZ.
    I am Harry Reads daughter.
