Jane and I met Jim when we moved to Greenville in 1995 as we were wanting to build a home. We knew right away that Jim was a man of integrity. We chose Jim's development to build our home in. We were blessed to become friends of Jim and Renee. We have so many great memories of our times together, We came to know Jim as a man of God. Our lives have been enriched by his friendship. We praise God for bringing our paths together. Our prayers and hearts are with Renee, Van and Dani.

My deepest sympathies to Danielle and the entire family on the passing of Jim. Although I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Jim and Danielle personally, my connection with Ray and Lorraine Kayal, my dear cousins, allows me to deeply empathize with the pain of losing a loved one. May Jim's soul rest in peace and be eternally with God. Sending all my love and support to Danielle and the family, Renee Kayal and Van Boyette, and Ray and Loraine during this difficult time.

I met Jim when we chose Kingsbridge to build our home in 2000 and he graciously worked with us to move the transformer a few feet to allow our needed driveway layout. Not only did he develop this beautiful subdivision but I then selected an office building to open a division of my engineering company in and found out he also owned the Garlington Road property we moved into in 2001. Over the years when we needed more space he always worked with the other tenants to move them so we could have contiguous space. And then, when we had slowdowns in the business, he was equally gracious to allow us to shrink and give back space. He was always fair and as long as we made a mutually beneficial deal he was happy. I left that company 2 1/2 years ago and lost touch with Jim but do remember discussing the cancer and praying together for God’s will. I know he is sitting at the feet of Jesus now and will see him again.

Our family has known the Boyett family since 1975 when we moved to San Esteban Ave. just around the corner from them. Jane and Susan babysat our daughter Kirsten and many times Van took her to their weekly family dinner at Riviera. I was fortunate to get to know Jim well, become friends and invest with him in South Carolina. It was always a pleasure to do business together and an honor to have been a friend. Kirsten, my wife Diane and I send our sincere sympathies to Renêe and Jim's entire family at this most difficult time.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My sincere prayers for the family of this outstanding and Godly man. I moved my father’s firm to Blue Lagoon in 1988 and we remain there to this day. Jim made it so easy and was so helpful. We also did work for him and the development. He was honorable, fair and kind, in addition to being a visionary. I am certain he is now with our good Lord.

Wow, the world has lost another good one! He was a quiet giant among his peers, and for those he let in close experiencing his sense of humor was your reward. We wish that each of you in the family find peace in the memories you made together and my God take Jim to the board room table and my bet is that maybe he will fix a few things up there in heaven.....Our thoughts and prayers are with you always! May you rest in peace Jimbo.... Gregg & Becky Guilford

God willing, we will all meet again. God bless.
