Memories Timeline


  1. I’ve known Mr. Van for over 40 years through his son Mark (my best friend). Many years ago Jim and Ray, Mary Kays husband, took Mark and I do a driving range in Seguin. First and only time I’ve been near a golf course. We had a blast knocking the ball around that day. Through my travels through Seguin as well as my visits to town, I got to visit Jim when I could. He always had a smile on his face and always a kind word and always ready to hand you a little advice about this or that. His battle is over now but now he begins his Heavenly journey with our Lord. R.I.P. Mr. Van.

  2. learned of my Uncle’s passing this weekend. Rest in Peace Uncle Jim. I remember you visiting us in New York in your Air Force days and a decade and a half later, I joined the USAF. Must have liked the uniform. We caught up in 1984? with a temporary duty I had at the General Dynamics plant in Fort Worth. Last time we talked was 9-10 years ago when we conversed in faith and the Knights of Columbus. You also spoke of developing a VanRosendael family tree. Sent what info I had that your brother John had given me. God Bless to the extended family.
