Happy Birthday Jim! R.I.P.

Dear Liz,,

My deepest sympathy to you, your children, and your extended family and friends. I was very saddened to learn of his passing, but my sorrow is tempered somewhat by fond memories of Jim, in Swansea, so many years ago.

I was raised there in the 1940s and 1950s and remember Jim (at that time he was "Jimmy" and I was "Lonny") with great affection and fondness. We were both members of the extended Bliss family, which (as you know) held reunions every Labor Day. He was always cheerful and supportive, and I considered him a great role model (and still do). I remember so clearly sitting with him in South Swansea, eating the traditional chicken salad, baked beans, and corn, and discussing topics such as what it was like to attend college (he got there first) and different models of cars and so many other topics.

Years later, I was pleased to connect with Jim and meet you at the reunion in Fall River. We picked up a conversation about old Packards where we had left off decades before!

Based on my recollections of Jim as a child and young man it never surprised me that he became a highly successful businessman and a true leader for so many worthwhile charitable and civic causes.

His passing is a major loss to his family, and to the community.

I just recently learned of Mr. Waring's passing and extend my sincere condolences.

Although encounters with him were few and brief, I found his enthusiasm and determination most admirable and enjoyable. In particular, I fondly recall "May I share an Observation". As a man of varied and innumerable travails, he observed much and had much to share. May he rest in peace.
