Thank you to everyone who has left a message for our family. I personally recognize all of your names from my conversations with Jim. I am his sister Joyce who lives in Atlanta. This meant the telephone and e-mails were our main source of communication and we had many hours racked up. We miss him very much and we will continue to keep his memory alive. As you probably know Jim appreciated anything Asian or from the East. Instead of a mass card for those who came to the memorial luncheon we used a smiling Buddha holding a place card that read: "To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die". He will forever be in our hearts.
Thank you all so much for working with Jim and caring enough to leave your messages.
Sincerely, the Wagner family
So very sorry to learn of Jim's passing. I was his supervisor at the North Riverside SSA office; we had our go rounds, but I valued and respected him very much--not just as a great employee, but as a good guy with a big big heart. He talked all the time about his Mom, beamed about his nieces and nephews, and the treasured time spent with his family, always with that smile on his face. I know you will miss him so much. Will keep you in my prayers. Rest in peace, Jim.
I am so sad to learn of Jim's passing. He was a great guy. He had a smile for everyone, even when he was fussing! It was my pleasure to work with him for 5 years. My deepest condolences.
Our thoughts and prayers to Jim's family. My spouse worked with him at 2100 SSA and I worked with Jim at North Riverside SSA. I still have a Japanese Garden that he gave me when I left the office. Sorry for your loss.
My deepest condolences to the Wagner family. Jim and I worked together at the North Riverside office.
My deepest condolences to the Wagner family. Jim and I worked together for many years he was a great person.
