Not sure what to say?

I was driving in the old neighborhood and saw that the house was for sale. I had a feeling... so I just found out about James' passing. I'm SO SORRY to hear the news especially after so long. Some of my best memories were of the old days spent with Tim and the family. My sincerest condolences. Old neighbors were the best!

Jim was an easy going, good hearted soul. He was easy to talk to and I cherish his insights from our conversations.

God Bless - Chantos Family.

Aunt Helen and family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you, and I will always remember the joyous memories.

Aunt Helen and Family,
I have been thinking of you all and wish I could have been there for you all. Uncle Jimmy was always kind and most respectful to me. I will miss him. I have great memories of him during the little time I did get to see him. I know he has been a Great Father, Husband, Grandpa and Uncle and I know everyone will miss him dearly.
Love Bobby
