To the Conway Family:
It is with a heavy heart that I write to you during this difficult time. Please take comfort in knowing that you aren’t grieving alone. Jimmy touched the hearts of so many people, including mine.

Kindly accept my most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Jimmy was a wonderful person who will be greatly missed by those of us who admired and respected him. My thoughts and prayers are with Jimmy and you during this difficult time.

It was a true pleasure growing-up with Jimmy in our hometown of Winthrop. Jimmy and I attended school, together. We played hockey, together. We hung-out with the same group of friends. We shared lots of laughs, did some crazy things, and suffered our share of sorrows. Yet, through it all, we had a grand ole' time. I am fortunate to have known Jimmy.

What I remember most about Jimmy is that while playing goal, he had a fiery temper. He was a solid goaltender. A true competitor. He was an esteemed member of the 1976 Winthrop High School Division 1 State Championship Hockey Team. Yet, when away from the rink, Jimmy was very affable. He had a quick wit and a dry sense of humor.

Later in life, Jimmy and I coached a little league team, together. I had the pleasure of getting to know his wonderful son, Aidan, from that experience. As I remember, Aidan was very much like his father.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

Rest in peace, "Cridge"!
