Joyce, I am so very sorry to learn of Jim's passing. You knew me as Janet Nicely and I lived in the cabin before you and Jim. I worked with Jim at WFTR. I pray for God's peace and strength for you in the days ahead, you and Jim were together for many years.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Like many... I worked with "Jim" many years ago. With the ego-maniacs that usually work in radio... Jim WAS NOT one of them Jim & I ALWAYS enjoyed a friendship & mutual respect over the years. We sure shared some great ole' war stories about the people that we had crossed pathes with throughout our careers! Jim... enjoy your new home and the peace it brings you. I will scan the early morning frequencies to see if you went home & built another station. You will be missed. May God Bless your family with the memories you've left with us.

I had the great pleasure of working with Jim for many years. He could be gruff and grumpy at times but I always attributed that to his passion for the radio business. I have many memories of Jim but my fondest is when he told me, with tears in his eyes, that he had accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior. Knowing that gives me comfort and I pray that it gives you peace as well. He may not be here physically, but we'll always have our memories and the assurance that, if we too have accepted Christ Jesus, we will see Jim again. The thoughts and prayers of the entire Hill family are with you and your family. Mic off, logs signed, shift over, rest in peace Jim.

Ivan was the person who made me interested in radio, something I enjoyed doing for 20 years! For that I'll always be grateful. Our love and prayers are for Joyce and Ivan's peace!

I remember Uncle Ivan from a very young age when he started his D.J. profession on E. Market Street in York Pa.. Jim Lawrence (his radio personality name) would let my siblings and myself sit in his studio as he did his broadcast over the airways. We were amazed by all the equipment and oh what memories were shared there. We learned so much! God Bless Aunt Joyce and Uncle Ivan, you finally made it to the "pinnacle of the airways in the sky"! See you soon Uncle Ivan on those beautiful shores...
