You are a strong woman, from a strong family and you all will get through this by sharing the love and comfort instilled in you by such a loving man - your father. God bless you all. Much love from Terri's sisters - Jennifer, Lorna and Lauren.

Paula, it does not matter how many years have gone by. Your dad was my second dad, and I am so saddened at his passing. Heaven has two wonderful men who will always remain a huge part of our lives. They never truly leave us. Love to everyone from Gord, Cathy, Caitlyn and Douglas.

Jamie & Family:
Both Kathy & myself were deeply sadden & shocked to learn of your fathers untimely death.
As you know I worked with Jim at the LC hospital many moons ago. I remember that he always had a smile on his face and was always kind & gentle with the patients. He treated me well and mentored me along the way which I most certainly appreciated!
Please pass on my sincere condolences to all of your family.
Hopefully we can talk soon.
Sincerely, Dean

Our condolences to all family members and Ellen also. The years I worked for and with Jim on the ambulance were the best years of my life and in all those years I never heard him say anything about anyone unless it was a good comment. Jim was the best and is sadly missed.
