  1. Uncle Jim I will cherish our memories both new and old. I will especially miss our conversation where you were always able to impart great wisdom on a variety of topics. Your presence will be dearly missed. Rest at peace with the angels and your beloved wife.

    ~Love, Jeanne and Tia

  2. Uncle Jim, my earliest memories of you would be when I was a young child and you would come home for a visit. You would always make time for me, talking about baseball cards or playing Jax and such. Years later, when you and Aunt Mary Anne moved to West town, all the family get together and holidays we had. Such cherished memories. Love and miss you, Betty
