Al & Sandy Glasby send love and prayers to all Ludlow family. Always kind, thoughtful and methodical, Jim dedicated his life to accuracy and safe medicine. He and I practiced our profession for many years unselfishly; putting the patient first and spreading the word to the entire community for safe medication delivery systems. We'll miss your infectious smile and laughter.

I hope your getting through this tough time. All I have is good memories for Mr. Ludlow. Had lots of fun during my childhood swimming in the pool. Playing billiards in the basement. I was always welcomed with nothing but smiles and generosity from Mr. Ludlow. and the whole Ludlow family. It was a great journey. We should celebrate and remember all people he touched along the way.

I'm sorry for your family's loss. Jim was both my neighbor and friend and best friend to my dog, Mickey. They had so much fun together. Even after I moved, just driving down Woodmire, my dog would go crazy as we passed Jim's house. I will remember him the same way, as the days go on without him. May God bless you, Jim and keep you in his grace forever.

I worked for Jim at Morley Drug Store, forever ago, in the 70's. I was just graduating high school, but Jim made an impression on me and I have never forgotten him. Mostly I remember his smile and what a kind man he was. Geri you are in my thoughts and prayers. So glad I had a chance to see you both a few years back.

Jim will certainly be missed. We worked together on occasion and he was always smiling and in a great mood. He taught me a lot about pharmacy and helped me develop as a pharmacist. He always had kind words and never seemed to be in a bad mood. What a great pharmacist, his coworkers and patients all loved him. Thanks Jim for always being there for me when I needed advice on filling prescriptions. I will miss you!!!!

Certainly a loss for so many! A wonderful man who wore his faith openly with his kindness and concern. We will miss him for now, but not in the future. May God continue to bless Jeri and his family.

Jim was a good friend to me. From raising our boys in "Indian Guides" in the early years to going to the "Dream Cruise" and train shows in later years. I was golfing with Jim when he made a "hole-in-one"! Also helped him install 2 swimming pools. These are great memories I will always cherish.
God bless, Bernie Ris

Jim, a true friend always willing to help in time of need. Our "friendly pharmacist" will be missed beyond words.

Jim, a good and faithful servant of God. A kind person who led his life helping people within and without the church. Jim was one who could calm confusion of others through his mild ways or blunt humor. He has marched in with the saints in heaven.
