Not sure what to say?

My deepest sympathy to the Garvey on the loss of Mr James Garvey. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Garvey on a trip to the USA and remember him as being really pleasant and friendly. He was related to my family in West Cork through his late mother, and he reminded me of my relatives from there. From Abbey Hyde and Joe Sloan, Dublin, Ireland.

Dear Barbara,
My prayers and sincere condolences to you and all the family on the loss of Jim. He was truly a man "larger than life" whose presence always offered warmth and good humor to all who met him. I am so sorry that I was unable to be present for the wake or funeral but know that my thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief and sadness.

Dear Dave...We were very saddened to learn about your wonderful father. We wanted to extend our heartfelt condolences to you, your mother and your extended family. Sincerely, Doris and Pat O'Brien

Dear Moira,

I am so very sorry for your loss, I know how losing a loving father can leave a great whole in his daughter's heart. I am sure you'll think of him most days and he will be there with you always.

With great sympathy,

To Buzzy and all the Garveys
Jo and I send you our prayers and best wishes on the loss of your special , smiling Jimbo.
Jo remembers sending letters to Jim when he was stationed in Germany in the service half a century ago. I remembers hanging political signs for many special candidates all over Springfield in years past. We both remember singing at our wedding back in 1963.
We cherish memories of so many happy events we shared with the Garvey family.

Paul and Jo...

The positive energy and sheer love of life that Jim Garvey spread throughout his lifetime will be with us forever.
