My condolences to you, Carol, and your children on Jim's passing. Jim was always smiling and such a good listener. He was a great leader to our group in the lay ministry program.
May God be with you at this difficult time and may He give you peace.

It's hard to find words..I have so many emotions right now. Joy for you Jim as your joy is now complete. Sorrow for myself and all your Family who will miss you terribly. But most of all I feel extremely grateful for having been a part of your life. A cousin yes, but also a Brother in Christ.
The thing I most admired about you was that you were not afraid to speak the Truth in Love. Sometimes it didn't feel so good but you always wanted what was best for everyone...Heaven!
Rest in Peace, James, until we meet again!

Jim was our next door neighbor when we just arrived in Canada back in 1995. He and his wife Carol were there for us as neighbors and cousins the entire time we lived in Regina and we are very grateful to them for all they've done for us in that time. We are sorry to hear about his passing. We will miss him. Our condolences to his wife Carol, and his children, grandchildren, siblings and other family. Love Lijana, Maja and Jonel Lazarjan

I'm very sorry for Jim's sudden passing, my condolences to Carol and her family.
My best memories of Jim were when we were kids on the farm two miles apart.
We went back and forth playing hockey outdoors and football when warmer.
We also worked together as my Uncle had us dig a new outdoor bathroom.
I always wanted to get a golf game with Jim but his back ailment wouldn't allow it.
I am very lucky to have so many good times with you Jim . I hope and pray we will meet again

Our sympathy at this time! I remember seeing Jim at his mother's funeral walk past the truck that held his Dad (at the cemetery) and touch the window tenderly as he went by. It was so sweet!
