Dear Jeanette and Family
My most sincere condolences. I will always have fond memories of Jim, he was such an easy person to visit with, he always had a story or two and had a great sense of humour. He was one of those people that when you saw him you wanted to say “hi” to, because he always made you laugh. RIP Jim.

So sorry to learn of the passing of your beloved Jim. I first got to know Jim when I was a young U of A student working summer jobs at the UFA Co-Op.(66-69). Jim was a very welcoming, thoughtful and caring person with a great sense of humour! May beautiful memories of times you shared be a source of comfort in these days of sadness! My deepest sympathy to all!
