Also surviving, but just barely, are several well-used, much studied Bibles. Jim, commonly called Hoover, was a veteran of the U.S. Army and served in the Artillery Battalion followed by service in the Army Reserve. He worked construction most of his life but his calling, and passion, was studying, preaching and teaching the gospel. A very smart man with a simple, life-changing message, “He that believes in the Son has everlasting life,” Amen.
