Not sure what to say?

Dear Kathy,
I am so saddened to learn of Jim's passing.
I remember his intelligence, kindness and smile. He always offered help whenever I needed to maneuver the Advance archives. Please accept my sincere condolences.

Kathryn, so sorry for your loss. Jim was a stand up guy. As you know, I worked with him at The SI Advance for many years and we had many discussions about various topics. He was especially proud of his S.A.R. heritage which we spoke about in length. A wealth of information about The Advance, history & Staten Island in general. My condolences to you and your family.

Jim was a delightful and generous gentleman. Condolences to Kathy and the family.
