A few key notes:

2) Visitors, we love you!  - please text Mary/Jim to alert them of a visit  and please  arrive vaccinated and feeling well. Please, wash your hands on arrival, we wanna be mindful of Jimmy's immune system. We can't always be here and may not always be feeling well enough to visit. Please accept our apologies in advance if we miss you.

Jim Paisley: father, grandfather, husband, uncle, friend + local rock star, decorated musician, selfless volunteer, custom woodworker, and, most recently, pie-and-bread-baking phenom.
Jimbo is everything the Wood River valley exudes - an empathic family man with artistic entrepreneurship running through his veins. A 40-year staple of the community, he can frequently be seen taking jean-clad excursions through the Valley’s endless trails and perfecting his unicycle craft from Bellevue to Ketchum, all the while never too busy for a passing friendly conversation or just a flash of his sweet, simple smile. He has always typified the ideal that it’s not about the destination, but the journey.
And now, it’s time for a journey down an unfamiliar road with and for our Jimmy.
Last week, Jim was diagnosed with inoperable, multiform Level 4 GBM (an advanced and aggressive type of brain cancer) . The diagnosis was swift and the prognosis heartbreaking. To that end, our sole goal is to make him as comfortable as possible in a calm and loving environment - the type he always created for his family. In his Bellevue home that he shares with his wife, Mary, we will need full-time, professional home health, in addition to daily Twin Falls trips for treatment for 6 consecutive weeks.

We are so grateful for our community. Thank you for visiting and staying in touch.
