Not sure what to say?

Jim you were like a grandpa to me and I love you much I will miss you crazy, I know I haven't seen you in a while but you were always in my heart and still will be. I will miss you dearly.

Harpo, I would be going to or coming from the beach and we would pass. You would reach out and pat me on the shoulder or we would high five in passing. When I needed to borrow eggs or sugar, Connie would say- just go to the house you know where the frig is. The kids were little then and always at the beach with all of us. Will miss Jim as he is "Avila" to me. Matt- fresh fish always and take care of the rest of the clan!! Connie you are the cornerstone of it all. Love and will miss...

Dear Connie & Jessica & other family members of Jim Allen,
Jim was always and still is such a pleasant and nice man. I am sure you will all miss him a lot for a few short years until we all join him there in the joys of life in Heaven, which is even more joyful and better than this wonderful life of living in the United States, and even better than living on the Central Coast. I remember feeling very clearly 12 years ago after my severe car accident while barely alive for a few...

I'm sad to here of jims passing.I worked with Jim for years at Diablo cyn.Always fun to be around,yet still getting the job done.I hope he's fishing with my dad in the great pond in heaven.steve leseman,operating enginer.

Jim, whose smile warmed and filled the room.
His love of life and family, especially his kindred spirit, Connie, was always present, adding to the glow.
His bear hugs made one feel welcome and the twinkle in his eyes included you in the joke.
Thunder and lightning keep us away from wishing you aloha in person. You left us much too soon.
We'll miss you Jimmy. With warm aloha, until we meet again.
