  3. Thinking of you all and wishing we could all be together at this time. Rest in Heaven Uncle Jim. We will sure miss you! Love, Jules

  4. Uncle Jim once wrote a letter to his sister, my Mom, Mary helen before she married my Dad, Don. Uncle Jim was aboard and not able to attend the wedding. I suppose it was his way of approval being the eldest brother and all. It was straight forward, caring and loving in his little way. I was hoping to attach it as it pretty much sums up how Uncle Jim showed loved. He will always be remember quite simply as Uncle Jim who will be missed. Love you Uncle Jim. Rest in peace

  5. Dear Pat,
    We just heard today during the televised Cabrini Mass, that Jim had passed. We send you our love and prayers. He was always so “put together” and carried himself as a true gentleman! We hope you receive comfort from our God, especially during this trying time for our world. We hope to see you back at Cabrini in the future…
