We are thinking of each of you during this difficult time. Jim was a wonderful man with a great sense of humour and time for everyone. We think of him with so many great memories in mind at the camp, curling rink, arena and family functions. Matt and I have both lost our fathers and can relate to the loss that hits everyone and never goes away. Hold tight to the good times, cherish all that he means and live life to the fullest. The camp will always keep Jim close by. Sending our deepest sympathies.

To Pat, Kevin, Connie, Dana & families please except our prayers and know that family and friends are not that far away. Jim was a true friend of my Dads, they would get at the shop and talk for hours we knew Jim was busy but he always stopped and gave Dad his time both Mom and I where thankful for his kindness that Jim always showed to the family. So maybe they are talking again and the jokes will be flying up there with Aunt Laureen around the table with them both. God Bless.
Darcy & Cathy & their families both send there blessing to the family as well.
