There is joy in heaven. When one of His saints go home.
Uncle Jim was a angel , heart so kind ,gracious to all around him,
He makes sure you are full when he invites you. Our great Santa in our parties. I was amazed one year when he said to me he is retiring as Santa. He lend me his suit. I became Santa. It was strange but a joy to be Santa for a few years. His encouraging heart, humble demeanor , he always make me feel at home. He comes every year so early to reserve the park for the Easter event every year. You will
See him there cleaning the place , so that everyone will enjoy the Easter egg hunts. Many kids and eggs were given, more importantly ,happy kids with many eggs going home. Parents full in their stomach and spiritually. What a yearly event, uncle Jim you made it spotless every year. We will miss you.
You’re legacy is in our hearts , thank you.

Our Beloved Uncle Jimmy...What are your fondest memories of him? Personally, so MANY to mention that I will simply pick two to share (let's just call them Big and Small moments) which have impacted my life. My Big moment I'd say took place at the rightfully named "Jim's Banner Food" (the Eng's grocery store!)As kids (laura and I) would run up and down the aisles to price goods,hang out at the cash register to ring  up sales, package groceries, watch tv in the backroom, eat grandpa's delicious meals for lunch, listen to olden goldies, people watch or simply watch Uncle Jimmy and Aunty Mary in action together.
In retrospect, at this grocery-store-playground was in fact where I learned some of the most fundamental life lessons. Unknowingly, Uncle Jimmy showed us how one is to behave in public/working environment/how to be patient, to take charge, to respect and how to be kind. It was really amazing to watch him interact so genuinely with a warm smile to folks from all walks of life...especially those who had less...He was this way with strangers, this way with his family and friends. He was this way with me. My Small moments would include times when he dressed as Santa Claus (my first Asian one ever!) whilst receiving gifts from him or as a hopeless romantic driving us kids in the back of his truck to enjoy fried chicken at the beach to catch the sunset or witnessing his school of "no child-woman-man-ever- hungry when he was around especially feasting at his home! Let me tell you these smaller moments are no less significant. In fact, they cemented more life lessons that one should always work hard, have FUN, be romantic, and share your wealth! I am so proud to be your niece and had our time together on earth. Mahalo for helping the many of us become proud Chinese Americans. Being our guardian angel while we watchfully learned from your enormous work ethics to strive for equality as people no matter where you came from and do our best succeed in life and LOVE.

So many childhood memories took place at the Eng home. Jimmy and Mary always had an open door and I remember a lot of music and dancing with friends and family. And Santa every year! Always grateful to have them in our lives. I'm very sad not to be able to be there with you, Laura, Troy and Kent. Your dad was a true gem.
