Not sure what to say?

I just learned of your dad's death tonight and wanted to offer my condolences. We worked together in Huntsville & have kept in touch over the years. He was so proud of the both of you & loved you both so much. He'll be missed.

I miss you Dad!

My prayers are with Jim's Family...I knew him as he worked in the field of Public Health. He was a very good man.

My sympathies go out to Jim's daughters and all other family members. Jim was a colleague of mine in the Division of Public Health, and I enjoyed my association with him over those years. I did not know we shared the same birthday. Had I known that I would have insisted we buy each other a drink on that day to celebrate. I know he would have enjoyed that.

My prayers go out to Jim's girls and all of his family. May God wrap his arms around you and carry you through. I had just met Jim when he became the Iredell County Health Director. I soon learned what a truly caring person he was. He always had a kind word for everyone and would stop at our office doors just to say hi.

So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Worked together as Health Directors and he was a joy to be around. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

To his lovely daughters, I am so sorry for your loss. I had been communicating with Jim through eHarmony, and was enjoying getting acquainted. I lost my husband in 2010, and am raising two teenaged sons, so we had a lot in common. He was a thoroughly charming man. He talked about you often. You both made him very proud.

Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

Hillary, I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. You're dad was one of the sweetest and funniest people I have ever met. I will always remember the times he drove us around listening to our crazy music, cheering for us at soccer games, and painting his nails with us. He really loved you and Maureen. He is a great man that made a huge impact on my family and my life and he will be missed greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Maureen.

Hillary and Maureen, We are so very sorry for your loss. Steve and I fondly remember your father from the time we spent with him at soccer games when Hillary and our daughter Hannah played together. He had such a great sense of humor and was so proud of his girls. We know you will miss him so much. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.
