To Cousin Jack and Tim, and to rest of Jim’s extended family my condolences. I planned to be at funeral home, and mass, and burial but I have come down with a bacteria infection which is not yet safe for others for me to be around. I’m extending my arms of care for you and we will miss Uncle Jim, who was quite a man.

My deepest sympathy to the entire family! Jim was a straight shooter if there ever was one. His contributions to the community via school board service and other less obvious ways are a credit to him and greatly appreciated by many. May you find comfort in knowing he is resting peacefully in our Father's arms. You will be in my thoughts and prayers these coming days.
