Not sure what to say?

Just found out about the passing of James A Haines. He was the BEST Mayor of Harvey.

After a close friendship which started some eighty years ago I am really going to miss you.

I would like to offer my deepest sorrow to the entire Haines family. As a child I lived next door to the deceased's sister's home and directly across the street from his parents' home. Such treasured memories of life on Calumet Blvd. and of my grandfather's (George Bloomer's) friendship with Mr. Haines.

Bountiful blessings,
Dr. Linda L. Bielowski

My sincere condolences to your family during this grievous time. God, who is a refuge and strength, provides abundantly during difficult times. May God give you the peace and comfort you need to endure the days ahead.

Nancy, I am so sorry to you and your entire family on the loss of your Dad, I am keeping all of you in prayer.

My deepest sympathies to all members of the Haines family. Jim kept the tradition of the Haines', who were prominent in the foundings of Harvey.

Dear Mrs. Haines, Jimmy, Cynthia, Janet and Nancy...It was bittersweet to see all of you again today at the wake of your dear dad/husband. I know how much he will be missed. Such a good man and a great mayor of Harvey..when Harvey was a great place to live! I also remember all the fun times at your cottage. May he rest in peace. Susan (Giese) Azana.

Dear Haines Family,
I hope your loss can be assuaged some by the knowledge that so many remember James as someone who made their world a better place, because of the person he was and the things he did. I knew him as the father of one of my best friends ever, Janet, and her brother and sisters. Knowing James, Elsie, and the family for the time I did, when I was lucky enough that they included me in their lives, has left me with memories that I will cherish forever.

Nancy-- praying for you and your family. I know you have wonderful memories of your dad .
