Sorry to hear of Jim’s passing so long after the fact. We hadn’t been in touch for many years but still thought of frequently. We were cousins from his first marriage and when that disintegrated , I guess our relationship did also. With Jim being the character he was, he will not be forgotten. Our sincere belated condolences.

So sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He had mastered with your training…how to be the life of the party….only toned down…many many smiles and laughs did he bring, you where always a dear, sweetie, or honey…I always thought it was because he couldn’t remember so many names…lol. But that was not the case…he knew everyone’s name. He said you know some women never get called a honey, dear, or sweetie and I want them to feel special and that he always did. His stories where priceless… and he adored you Gloria. My prayers go to you in this time to heal, Many hugs to you and condolences to you and your family.

Gloria, I am so terribly sorry for you and this unexpected and unfortunate loss. Uncle Jim was a wonderfully hearted and loving man. He was a friend of mine that will be dearly missed. I always loved having Jim and you with our family for vacations, ripping up the golf courses together! I also always looked forward to spending holidays together with Jim at Mom (Rachel) and Dads (Dr.Glyn) enjoying amazing Ukrainian food made by Gloria and mom. Jim never failed to have a good sense of humor, even when struggling or feeling down. He was always able to crack a joke and make me laugh. Uncle Jim made being around him fun and enjoyable and I always looked up to him as a young man growing up. Love you Gloria! ❤️ Jim will be truly missed.
