Condolence & Memory Journal

I am honored and blessed to have known Jim. He was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. His smile was contagious and he was always a pleasure to be around. He made me laugh for hours with his fantastic joke telling ability. He was a true gem.
My sincere condolences go out to Eleanor and all of Jim's family. My God bless you all.

The memories I have of sleep overs in the apartment above the Seymour square, fried egg sandwiches and diet pepsis in the freezer--even if we didn't get them out before they froze and exploded in the freezer Jim never raises his voice. He was a good dad and loved Kelly more than ever. Always saw him with his mom . .. what a good son. You will be missed.

To Jim's family, prayers being said by many of his 1966 classmates. Jim was a good friend to many in school. As we all lost touch with him, it sounds like he's had a good life with kids, grandkids. Gone too soon, may good memories ease your loss.
