“Dear Lord, we pray for the sake of those assembled here to honor Jim, that you find for him a special place in heaven where he can grow his garden, to share with others, loved ones who have gone on before him, those wonderful fruits and vegetables and nuts, and that they will assemble there to enjoy his special food and to hear his special humor and stories and feel the warmth of his love. We ask those left behind to remember Jim’s special gifts and the contributions that he has made and to keep his memory alive. We honor his life, Father, and we thank you for the privilege of sharing in the life of one your special creations. Amen”
Those of us who had the chance to get close to Jim are fortunate to have been his friends. He was special…and he did special things for the produce world.
We will all miss Dr. Jim Joseph…even if you never knew him.
Researchers like Jim play a vital role in the ultimate success of the produce industry.
