Not sure what to say?

Today our thoughts are with Mary and the rest of their family and friends. He was a wonderful friend and we will miss him. His spirit carries on.

Mary and Family,
I met Jim 30 something years ago when I started working for MDOT. Even though I haven't seen Jim in a long time, he was a very good friend and will always be remembered for his consideration for others and his great personality. I remember when Jim would give Vivian a ride to work when the weather was bad because he knew how she hated to drive in the winter, she was always so grateful. Jim also enjoyed attending our golf outings just to socialize, especially after he...

Just a note to let you know of our deep
sympathy for you and the family. We hold you close.
Barbara and David.

Mary and Family, Wayne and I send our sympathies in your loss of Jim. We will always remember him as a wonderfully cheerful and kind person. We will remember good times boating with you both years ago. Wayne and Gayle Neuman

My deepest sympathies and prayers are with the family at this sad time.

Dear Mary, Jeff, Wendy, Susie, Val, and Amy,
Our family was saddened to learn of cousin Jim's death. I have happy memories of the fun times we had as kids at Grandma and Grandpa's out at Linwood. Jimmy and Nicky were always up to some kind of shenanigans, and the rest of us tried to get in on the action as well. I have hope that he is in heaven now and enjoying the fruits of a life well-lived. Looking forward to seeing him again. You remain in our thoughts and prayers.

So sorry for your loss...you are in my prayers!

Remember the good time! And know your in our prayers!
