So many memories of Uncle Jimmy, along with his brothers and sisters, who would gather at my Mom's house. As Uncle Jimmy would say he was going to the country to his sister Katie's. Many good times and a lot of laughs with Uncle Jimmy, Doreen, Eileen and James. Thanks again Uncle Jimmy for all the twenty dollar bills you slipped me as a kid, never forgot that. United now in heaven with his brothers and sisters, "The Farrell Clan"
Love you Uncle Jim, your nephew Gregory.

Uncle Jimmy always had a smile on his face and had some of the best dance moves that Fred Astir would be envious of....Jimmy's service to the country was esp heroic bc was a Korean Combat Vet....joined military's myself bc he inspired me....
Have fun dancing in heaven Uncle Jimmy ...we will see you soon....
Scott Farrell, beloved son of Edward Farrell.
