Uncle Jim was always such a key part of our extended family and he will be sorely missed. I loved his calm demeanor and voice, and his wry sense of humor. His voice was one of wisdom and you could see and feel his love for everyone in the family. Jim and Rita are both such wonderful relatives and loving people. I have always felt we were lucky with our extended family, and Jim and Rita were key pieces of that tapestry, and critical to its warmth and love. Jim will live on as an example of solidity, balance, and steadfastness in our memories.
