Uncle Jim was a good man, I always enjoyed talking to him at family gatherings over the years. I felt fortunate to have a nice chat with him when Amanda got married. It was fitting that the last time I had a chance to talk to him that he was telling me about all of the exciting trips and interesting place that him and Bev last went to. He led an exciting life and he will be missed. My deepest condolences to Aunt Bev, and my cousins Shawn, Scott, and Michael, you are in my thoughts during this difficult time.

You will be so missed, Uncle Jim. I'll always remember your kindness and how you were genuinely interested in chatting about someone's life. You were a wonderful man, and the King family will never forget the many good times we shared. Sending my condolences to Aunt Bev, Shawn, Scott, and Michael, and their families.

RIP Uncle Jim. You were a great man. Your family never wanted for anything, and we never worried about Aunt Bev while she was with you. I'll always remember chatting with you about politics, travel, and family.

Jim was a kind hearted man--1st cousin--we always enjoyed seeing him at our family gatherings --sharing stories of recent happenings--travels--and life. He always had a ready smile and took an interest in our family, where/what we were doing . He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this time.

God grant you peace, and gratitude for a life well lived--and far too short.

Cousin, Doris, Nikolai and Victor Grigorian
