    Qualls Family
    I am so sorry to hear the loss of your beloved patriarch! I have many fond memories as a young person hanging out at the Qualls home. God surely loved this man!!

  6. I met Mr.Jim long ago in foster care. He and his wife took me in as one of their own. Offered me a chance to enjoy my childhood and educated me about the love of God/Christ. I’m truly grateful for the memories/impression he left in my life. Plain City, Ohio… I talk about that place alot. That’s where we lived at the time. I send the family my deepest condolences and prayers. God bless.

  7. Ms. Judy,
    I am so very sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I pray that you have peace and comfort knowing that he is no longer suffering in his physical life.

    To the Qualls family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. (Acts 24:15) and (John 5:28,29) In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. (Mark 5:41-43) I would like to discuss more with you about God’s promises. Feel free to contact me at (614) 870-2979. Love Your Neighbor Irish J. Richardson.
