Guest Book

Not sure what to say?


I just heard your very sad news about your dearest Jim. As I read the guest book, there is a common thread in all of the memories of Jim. Words that resonate with my own, Jim was truly a very kind and caring man. As a past regular at the Westmount Gym, Jim always took time to say hello and "reach out". Whenever he saw our daughter Chelsea, he did the same. He had a gift of love for the people, and because of that, he made our world a better place.

Sheila & Family, I moved to Lacombe at age 6 and remember meeting Jim at his Dads' shop just down from the hotel where I lived. From day one he was always kind, caring & non-judgemental. Those traits remained and seeing him last year at the school reunion I realized that he was still that caring person I remembered from childhood. Marv & I are so sorry for your loss. With deepest sympathy. Bev Bird

Dear Sheila,

Bob and I were shocked to read of Jim's passing. So sorry to hear. We fondly recall curling with you both so many years ago, meeting in the apartment on 108th street, and sharing teaching stories. May your family and your many fabulous memories bring comfort at such a difficult time. Bob and Shirley Denkhaus

Dear Sheila,
I was so sorry to learn about Jim passing away. What a wonderful life you two had together. I sure enjoyed sharing time with you both on our cruises. May all your memories with Jim provide comfort to you now and always. Take care. My thoughts and prayers are certainly with you at this time.

Sheila and Jody,
Ken and I are very sorry to hear about Jim's passing. Jim was a most exceptional man. He was one of the kindest and most dedicated educators I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Jim's contribution to the Edmonton Public School Board and his volunteer work in the community made a profound difference to many people.

So sad, Sheila, my thoughts and prayers go out to both you and Jody and, of course, your whole family. We had many happy times together when you taught at Mayfield. Take care

Jim was an incredible educator and it was a privilege working with him. Even more important he was an incredible man. He had a heart of gold and would do anything for anybody. He will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with Sheila and her family at this sad time.
