Patty, Jen, Jarred and all the Morrisette family,

I am shocked and saddened to learn of Jim's passing. We had so many good times together when the kids were younger. Labor Day was always a fun time! Jim was so good to Toms grandmother. I enjoyed seeing him when he'd come to clean the furnace. He was always friendky, kind, and fun. I'm so sorry for all of you. You are ALL in my heart and prayers. I will remember Jim fondly.

Much love to all,
Peggy

We are very saddened to hear about the passing of Jim. He was always available to help night or day, always a pleasure to talk to and very generous to the community. As an icon in the greater Blackstone Valley region he will be sorely missed.
