Taking Pictures in Heaven

James (Jim) Palka

Dear St. Francis friends and family,

After a long and amazing journey, our friend and church photographer James (Jim) Palka passed away on February 28, 2024. Through determination and the willingness to explore all types of treatments, he held out against his cancer much longer than was expected. I will miss his wonderful wit and the humorous emails we would send back and forth to each other. He was a blessing.

If you would like to send cards to his wife, Hallie, here is the address:

Hallie Palka

6561 N. Montrose Dr.

Tucson 85741

Goodbye Jim, and fly high. I can only imagine the pictures you are taking in heaven.

With love to you all,
