It’s a sad time again for us, we’re driving up to Jasper GA to celebrate Jim Decker’s life after his passing to a better place than his recent stay here as Jim fought through pain and suffering these past months. Lydia kindly sourced a cute stay for us at the Woodbridge Inn. The view from the balcony overlooked the Blue Ridge mountains.
Our drive up and through Atlanta was uneventful and we arrived early enough to check in and freshen up before we headed over to Lydia’s. We arrived to warm hugs and a reunion with their kids – we have met most of them from our American Thanksgiving dinners with Jim & Lydia. Soon, food and refreshments were consumed and the celebration and story telling began.
Jim’s service was held at the church that they attended – back in a wooded area. The church was constructed with timber and glass, bringing the outdoors in. It was a beautiful worship centre to hold services for a man that enjoyed nature and his friends and family.
The passing of 2 very dear friends has left an enormous hole in our hearts.
