    Dearest Family of Such a Faithful and Wonderful Man,
    We are saddened to learn of our friends passing. Just know the type of love” Shrum” had for life and family lingers and never dies. We will remember his infectious smile when we are feeling low and need our spirits to be lifted up. Family he was a caring and quiet spirit, yet he could be quite a cut up and fun to work with. So family find solace in your memories and strength in the Word. James you’re home now and enjoy the welcoming table, where the table is spread!!

    So very sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. He was a wonderful person, guess he knew my family for most of his life. We all lived in the same area, I worked with James and Rita at Toshiba and he lived close to where I live now a very wonderful man he would help me if I had a problem with my lawn mower. Prayers of peace and comfort during this time for each and every one of you. R.I.P. my friend.
