    RIP Jimmy! I will be here for your family if they should EVER need ANYTHING! We have had our memories and I will never forget how big your heart can truly be! Thank you for that!! I hate that you, being so strong through SO much, became so sad. I promise we all wish we could have done something to change some point of your recent life, so you might have thought differently. I feel so bad!

    I want to send my condolence to the entire Kweedor family. Its been over 15 years since I last saw Big Jim. He was liven in Malden at the time. I attended dearborn middle school with his older son Jimmy. Big Jim was like a second dad to me and his sister Jean was like a second mom to me. I remember being a mentor to his nephews Timmy & Matt. Big Jim use to say Harshima you better set a good example for them, so that they grow up to be good men. Big Jim was one of the coolest dads I ever met. I remember when he would ground his kids Joseph and Jimmy I would be the only friend that Big Jim would allow over to the house. I cant believe Big Jim is gone. I will say a prayer in your remembrance. May God be with your Family.

    My best!
