Dear Shirley:

We enjoyed Jim during the years he was at Onset. I remember working side-by-side with a paint brush in hand on Friday workdays. The years have changed many things for us all, but you can enjoy the good years together and we hope our thoughts comfort you at this time.

Dear Shirley:

We are so very sorry to hear of Jim passing. I am sure it is not easy for you of the family, but in reading Jim's obituary we learned so much more about the fullness of Jim's life. He accomplished so much and reached many in a positive way. Certainly, it was a life well lived.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you,

Louis, Eden, Kallan, Lucas, Keaton, Griffin and Fiona Piconi
