    I’m at a loss for words. Jim was a true gentleman with a great and caring heart. Hard to believe he’s gone. Going to miss him dearly…

    Our Father passed when Jim was 14 yrs old. After graduating high school Jim moved out, determined to make his own way in life.

    Jim was independent, honest, decent, generous and above all: a loyal family man.

    He battled cancer for 36 years, in a most admirable manner.

    We thank the Lord that he lived as long as he did.

    Adios James – Well Done.

    You went through so much over the years. My heart breaks for you and your mom, Tom and John.
    I know you are finally pain-free and you are with your Lizanne, your Dad, and your grandmother.

    Rest in peace, dear Jim.

    I met Jim at a widows meeting we were both going over struggling with our losses. Jim and I were spending more time together became companions he was such a gentleman and caring. We helped each other with projects and he would go out of his way to make sure I was ok. He joined many family events and supported me during my mother’s passing. Then he was suddenly diagnosed with cancer and losing him so fast was devastating. I will miss you so much may you Rest In Peace and not suffering anymore.
    Love,
    Claire

    I met Jim at a widows meeting we both struggled over our losses. Jim and I spent a lot of time together and became companions. He was such a gentleman and a caring person who went out of his way for me fixing things around the house or making sure I was ok. He joined me with many family events and supported me during the loss of my mother. He had gone through so much himself battling cancer in the past and caring for his wife while ill until she passed. We both went through a lot dealing with our spouses having MS. I miss my partner so much. May you Rest In Peace and no longer have to suffer.
    Love,
    Claire Rague
