    I will always remember my beautiful Uncle Jimmy. He showed me how you love and respect the person you marry. He and Aunt Isabelle opened their heart and home to me when I needed to be in Philly for cancer treatments. I so loved his respect for me as a nurse many times asking advice. But the most beautiful thing I will always remember is the love he had for Walter, Stephanie and his true and forever love for Aunt Isabelle. Always in my heart...I will miss you.

    I was so saddened to receive the call from Isabelle on Thanksgiving morning! Jim you were kind, welcoming and accepting! I will remember the many nights gathered around your dinner table having cheese and wine relaxing and chatting. You will surely be missed by many! Thank you for all your kindness and generosity. My sympathy to Isabelle and Walter. I know your leaving will affect them the most. Your quiet soul was a rock for them to lean.
