Our deepest sympathy to Louise, Sandy, Peter, Kathy and their families. As time passes the tears still flow as I think of my brother, Jim. I make myself think of all the laughter he generated in his own special way to make the tears stop. I will miss our debating discussions, the wonderful kielbasa , the pumpkin time visits, most of all the smile on your face when I'd hug you. Yes, Jim, there will be two cups of raisins in the molasses cookies! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love , Paulette & Jim

Louise & Family,
As the days and weeks pass my prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
Jim was a special man and will be missed by so many. I remember one story where you were taking care of our two children and our son (age 4-5) didn't want to eat his potatoes; Jim said eat them or I will eat your dessert and our son said you can eat my potatoes too!
Love to you all, Brenda

My deepest sympathies to Aunt Louise, My cousins Sandy, Peter, Kathy, all the grandchildren, brother and sisters. Uncle Jim was a great man who will be missed by many. His work ethic and family man is to be admired and passed on for generations to come. I can still recall the old chicken barns we used to help with collecting the eggs and after the work was done we could use the pool. The help you gave our own family with learning to sheer our sheep and different ideas of taking care of the Turkey's when it came time. When the fall season arrived taking my son to your home to pick out his pumpkin was always a great time to visit and catch up. Family is everything and we will never forget you ❤

Oh that grin when he would hit you with a "quip". When I met him it took maybe 1 minute to feel like I had known him forever. Gentle man - kind - loving man.
My friend Sandy, Louise and family members, my sincere sympathy.

Hugs, Ronnie
