Jamie and Regina I am so very sorry for your loss. I loved Jim for the kind and friendly man i knew him to be, that had a warm greeting to everyone whom he met. I know he enjoyed both his grand babies. I just want you both to know we are all thinking of you and your family at this time of need. Please let me know if there is anything at all I do to help. God only takes the best, Jim you are just that! THE BEST!

It has been many years since I have seen that smiling face, but the picture of Jim reminds me of fun times hanging out at The Corner with the Croskery's and friends. My thoughts and prayers are with all of Jim's family at this sad time.
