I was a classmate of Jim's in Marianist formation. Needless to say I was very saddened by Jim's death. Although I have not really seen Jim in probably over fifty years, Joe S has kept me informed of Jim's life.

Be assured of my continued prayers for Jim and your family.

Years ago I came across a quote that has stuck with me: As Christians, we believe that we have never seen someone for the last time.

Uncle Jim May you find peace and celebrate with the rest of the family. My memories of you are how much of a fun loving man you were. May we all enjoy life like you. Your niece Cathy
