Aunt Alma, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Uncle Jim. I loved to see the twinkle in his eye when he grinned and had almost a schoolboy charm around you. He cared deeply for you and you will always have that in your heart.

Sandy and I are so grateful to Jim for helping us finish our rec room in our Newport home. Jim was always so willing to share his carpentry skills to make our home projects look so special.
Love and prayers

Jim's legacy will live on in through picnics at the family cabin, appropriately named 'Moonglo'. Jim's carpentry skills were so key to building an amazing family gathering place, which have brought family members together for over 50 years. His presence will be missed around the fire pit, smoke and all, and during nap time after a huge picnic lunch.

Thoughts and prayers are with Dee, Heather and Stacy and families. Jim was such a nice man. And a beautiful woodworker. He will be missed! Fran
