11 Condolences to James Pratt Lincoln II

  1. Alan Shelton says:

    I loved Jim as a brother and I miss him with all my heart and soul. The one solace I have is now he is out of all that pain he has been in for the last forty years. Jim was a good man and loved his three sons like no other, it’s what he would always talk when he and I where together. I had so many great times with Jim, we played softball together, went to football games together, watched the Redskins lose over and over again, had dinners together etc. I am not sure how life will be without him but I know he would want me to stay happy and I will do my best to do just that.

    Jim my best friend, I hope you are at peace at last. You will always be a part of of my thoughts as I go through my life journey.

    Family and Friends, Jim will be truly missed, he was one of a kind.

    With love and respect, Alan

    Jim and I had grown apart over the years but I will always remember our 10 years of Friday lunches at Pargo’s. What a special time! His personality, his attitude and yes, his strange laugh made these outings special. He was a special person and a great friend. My Grandson Justin passed away this past year and I am certain that the two of you will have a great time!

  7. John Davis says:

    Jimmy you were there for me when I needed a shoulder to lean on.
    A Big Jim Smile and a belly laugh like no other I know of would brighten my sprits.
    I failed to be there when you needed me and I pray you will forgive me.
    I can say not many days would slip by without thinking I need to find Jim and reconnect.
    I only have fond memories spending time with you and trust that my ashes could join yours on Shrine Mont Mountain.
    Jimmy may you rest in peace brother, until we meet again on our next journey….
    All I can think about now is the song, High up on that Mountain..
    Love you and miss you..

    My deepest condolences to Jim’s family..
