Uncle Jim was a kind good hearted & very funny fellow ! He never met a one liner that he didn't love & always had a joke handy. His love & humor will be sorely missed by all those who knew him. I'm blessed that you & Cathy were able to come visit Mom several trips during her dire time of need. So glad I got to do a donut @ the beach w you & Cathy while Mom rested ! I will hold you close to my heart always. Farewell dear Unc & say hello to "Sis" for me ! Love you always. xoxox

Uncle Jim was simply the best man I ever knew. I feel so luck to have been a part of his life. The memories of our time together will remain with me always.

Great man who taught me a lot. Was always willing to spare his knowledge. I will never forget him, he had a way of always finding the best in everything and it always showed in his smile. See you Mr. Jim.
