Judy and family,
We are so sorry for your loss.
Melvin "Bud" Bickford and Anita Noland


Jim was a great man. I had the pleasure of getting to know him while Dalton and I swam at their pool.  He would do anything for Dalton and I while swimming. He would turn the heater up on the pool so it would be a nice 90 degrees for him to swim. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.  RIP Jim!
