Jimmy was an old beloved friend with a heart much bigger than NH. Although we only saw each other several times over the years, the love and friendship we shared, never wavered. I’m positive this was how it was with all of Jim’s friends. He really was a person that gave from the heart and just loved everyone. My prayers and love to his family and friends. I feel so fortunate to have crossed paths with this very special person on life’s journey.

Many hearts are aching in NH as we try to celebrate Jimmy's life and cherish all our wonderful memories. I will miss his "Check in" calls along with his positive attitude. He always kept me up to date relating to his beautiful wife and beloved children and grandchildren. He was so proud and cherished all of you! I am deeply saddened however I'm very grateful to have had Jimmy in my life. His overwhelming kindness and love for family will never be forgotten. RIP my dear Friend and Cousin.

Jim was a wonderful friend and cousin. Jim brought so much joy to my mother’s life in her later years, forging a special friendship with her. He had such a big heart! I will miss him. My deepest sympathies to Valeta , whom he adored and all of his children.
