Dear Roberta and Family,
I was saddend to hear of Dr. Driscoll's passing. I considered him a wonderful person, professionally and as a friend. He took such good care of all the patients I referred to him. My patients would tell me how much they liked him. I missed him when he moved to Naples, but when I would ask about him, I would hear, " he's happy, playing golf". I was happy to hear that, because I know how much he loved playing golf. May he rest in peace and always make par.

I had the privilege of knowing Jim , in St. John’s University. He was a seriously motivated student with a quick wit and quicker smile, that could envelop a room.
We shared membership in the Phi Kappa Tau , National Service Fraternity , that maintains an active group of over 110 Alumnae, and still meet , twice a year ,50 years after graduation! My condolences to his wife Roberta and his Family. He was a bright light an accomplished Physician and will be sorely missed . His Brother, Matthew Casamassima

I knew Jim back in the early 1960's at St. John's University, as I was a student and then went to night school. I worked at the Registrar's Office and Jim would see me during the day and we would chat and discuss to get a good schedule for the semester. He never forgot the help given and was a good man. A good Brother of Phi Kappa Tau fraternity. May he rest in peace and continued condolences form St. John's University, where I yet serve as Vice President for Community Relations.
