We remember Jim as a kind and gentle man who loved his family and his animals and who patiently supported the interests of his family. Earth's loss is heaven's gain!

I will remember how incredibly smart James Pierce (my uncle) was and how knowledgeable he was in world history, politics, and economics. In addition, he was the kindest person I have ever met!

We were so very fond of this sweet, gentle man. For fourteen years he either greeted me when I went down to ride or was sitting out with his dog while I rode and always had something uplifting to say. I admired how he patiently supported Joann's and his children's interests. Earth's loss is heaven's gain. Jim and Carol Moffatt
