Not sure what to say?

Jim was a good soul and a terrific sailing pal. Always positive and witty. Jim made our lives richer for having known him. Godspeed, my friend, on your new journey.

Jim was a great friend and sailing buddy. We had great adventures in the Caribbean and his memory will live forever in our hearts. Fair winds and smooth seas.

Devastating hearing this news. Jimmy was at our home a lot back in the day and was great friends with our brother Paul Konold. I remember him as such a nice, kind person with a great sense of humor. Prayers and love to his family and friends during this difficult time.

May Jim rest in peace in God's arms. His giving and kind heart will always be what we remember about Jim. Always a gentleman. We are grateful to have known him. The Pajks

To my dear friend of 53 years, your wit and wisdom will be sorely missed. You fought the good fight with dignity right up to the end of your journey. Godspeed your entry into Heaven, where there is no waiting for good tee times.

My dear friend of 53 years, your wit and wisdom will be missed. No longer will you suffer, and you will get tee times in heaven anytime you wish

Extending sincere condolences to all of Jim's family and friends from the Konold Family. Jim was caring, kind, fun-loving and a good friend to many, including his classmates (The Boys") from high school. I was fortunate to have spent a couple of Canada trips with The Boys and got to know Jim. He was a joy to be around -- and quite the chef, as well.

I respected him so much. He was very intelligent and giving. He will be missed. His countless hours guiding his Condo community can not be measured and all who lived there and continue to live there are thankful for his contributions.

Rest peacefully my friend. I truly valued our early morning talks and think of them often when I'm at V S.
