Condolences to my cousins Jim and Michael and their families. I was lucky enough to grow up living in the same neighborhood as my Uncle Jim and Aunt Ann. They were wonderful, kind and caring people, who would do anything for you. Uncle Jim was always helping everyone. Whenever my dad needed something, Uncle Jim was always there to take care of things. I remember whenever there were family gatherings, Uncle Jim was never sitting down. He was always making sure everyone was taken care of. I remember the snowy winters and digging out the cars and Uncle Jim right beside us, helping.

Uncle Jim was a role model before we knew what a role model was. He will always be remembered. JJ
