Not sure what to say?

I was one of Jim’s dormmates at Rider College. Jim was a great guy and we had many discussions about religion and other topics. I have fond memories of him.

James will always be in my mind no matter how many years go by. I have a strong memory of growing up with both Jim and larry living just down the street from them on wight drive in Watertown just across the street from Degel Israel Synagogue. Even after moving to North Carolina, James would stay in touch with my mother Mary Marks with news of Degel Israel. I will always have Jim in mind and think of his kind personality.

I remember Jimmy as a kind always smiling older teenager who was always committed to Judaism. It sounds like he had a very meaningful and joyous life. My condolences to his family and friends.

I remember Jimmy as a very kind person always willing to help at the Synagogue in Watertown, he had a warm smile and made everyone feel welcome. He was also very patient when I tried on too many pairs of shoes and couldn't make a decision . He was a pillar of Degal Israel Synagogue in Watertown and I will cherish his memory. My sincerest sympathies to his family.

I am so sorry to hear that Jimmy passed away. We grew up together, went to school, Sunday school and Hebrew school together. I know that, after I left Watertown, your family and my parents were connected. We used to see you when we visited Watertown and our girls would play together. It is so interesting that both of our daughters became Rabbis. One of my favorite memories of all time involve your family. It was our 2 families, along with Eddie Abramson and his family, meeting for dinner...

So sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayer.

Betty and family Iam so sorry to hear about Jims passing. My prayers are with you all

Eileen and family, I am sorry to hear of your father's passing. My love and prayers to you all.

We are so saddened by Jims passing. We truly enjoyed Betty and Jims hospitality as we watched the annual Super Bowl in their timeshare in Fort Myers, Florida! We laughed! We yelled! Sometimes our team lost and once ina long while our team lost! But we had an exciting great time! Then we enjoyed dessert following a wonderful steak dinner! We will miss BabaLouie dearly! May these memories give you great comfort and a smile Betty! We will miss him terribly!!!
