    We have known Mr. Jim for the last 4 years. We first met him at Tractor Supply in Eunice. Since that time he has came to Oakdale from time to time and sat beside us and sold his woodwork as we sold our vegetables. Then he went to work with the Eunice PD and our son also works for Eunice PD Lt. Michael Dunn. We missed him then and will greatly miss him now.
