To the Gielink Family.

Your dad will be surely missed. Even though we didn't see him as often as we would like, he always seemed glad to see us and most importantly, he always attended all functions he was invited to. He was always smiling and in good spirits. I would run into him at my son's diner in Kirtland and he turned a regular breakfast or lunch into a most pleasant occasion. May he rest in peace.

James Gielink was a man of deep integrity and honor. He served
his country in the Navy. His family meant the world to him. I will
never forget the times he worked with us driving truck. We had a
lot of fun on all those jobs. Jim always gave one thousand per cent
in everything he did. He lived the Marine Corps definition of
integrity" always doing the right thing when no one is looking".
Jim may you rest in peace.
