It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this to you Jim. You weren't just my cousin but together with John and Bob you were my best friend. I will cherish all the memories of summer holidays, barbeques and swimming at the park amongst many others we shared over the years.

My two sons, Robert and Timothy, and I send our most sincerest condolences to Clara and David and John and his family. We wish you all peace, love and comfort during these sad times.
