Our sincere condolances to Jim's family. Jim would come in to our Father's store on a regular basis and he was always pleasant and kind. Jim had a swagger about him and he always greeted everyone with a smile and a handshake. The world would be a better place with more Jim's in it ! The Persch Family

Our condolences to the family of Jim Dixon. He was a very good friend who left me with many great memories. Our long talks that we've had over the years, especially after I moved to Texas, were very uplifting and helpful to us both. He was the kind of friend who kept in touch with me in spite of the distance. Paula and I will forever treasure the love and friendship that he and Connie has shown us. We will keep the family uplifted in prayer.
