You will truly be missed. You were a very nice person and I always enjoyed seeing you when I'd come visiting. My dog Benjamin was always so happy to come visit because you were his friend.
To my dear friend Rebecca and family - my thoughts and prayers are sent to you praying that God will give you comfort and peace as you get through this. Love to all.

How do you start Uncle Jim was everything to everybody. He always referred to me as his litte leprehaun and its hard to believe he has gone before us. I have missed talking to him on the phone. Our thoughts and love go out to Auntie May and all the family at this sad time. Arthur and Norma Burns.

Where to start,what to say about the irresistible force of nature that was our uncle Jim.From very humble beginnings he could not be stopped,with hardly any schooling he became self educated with many skills.
He was my absolute hero,by my side in the dark times when we lost both of our parents in one year,to those wonderful holidays where he and auntie May would spoil me and my family.Was so glad we were able to spend as much time as we did with them .
So long it’s been an honour to be your nephew

My Condolences to Auntie May and all the family. Uncle Jim was truly a one off, the world is truly a poorer place without him. I used to love all the stories people told about him and of course the ones he told aswell. I loved when he came home to Ireland to visit, creating my own memories etc too many exciting fun times to share. One of my biggest regrets in my life is that I never got to visit him and Auntie May in America. I know he had a lot of love for Auntie May and the family and he will be dearly missed by all.

Sorry my cousin Jim is gone, condolences to May and the family. I drove across six American States to see him nearly 20 yrs ago. His Mother, Mary Anne, was my Father's sister from Donegal, Ireland. She died when her children were very young and Jim and his brothers and sister didn't have it easy but he new how to work and stand up for himself. Many good memories of his many visits back home to Ireland . Rest in Peace Jim.

We have so many memories of this amazing man, he was the greatest great uncle who made my childhood holidays so much fun. There was never a boring moment, he always took us on many adventures. I was so glad he got to meet Ellie when she was little.
He was truly one of the best and heaven has gained someone very special
Love Clare, Brian & Ellie xxxx
