Dear Barb and family
It was a pleasure to interact with Jim throughout the years. As was mentioned in one of the other tributes Jim was a true gentleman in every sense of the word, He always sought to include others during social gatherings and had a great sense of humour in his own quiet way. My thoughts and prayers will be with you. May you remember the good times you shared with him.
