Dear Aunt Paula, Cousins Julie, Paul, Bill, and families-
I'm sorry to hear about Uncle Jimmy. It was always fun when when we all would hang out together....such wonderful and simpler times. Uncle Jimmy was always a pissah, laughing and cracking jokes. Although life pulls us away into our own commitments and challenges, please know our families are kin, and we grieve with you.
Jesus said this in Matthew 5:4 "Blessed are they that mourn, for they will be comforted."

My dear Paula, Julie, Paul and Bill,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Jim. I have fond memories of the long ago cookouts at your house and your dad's humor and life of the party presence. To me he will always be that guy with a big smile, slicked back hair like Bowser from Sha Na Na, a beer in his hand and the El Camino car. Much love to you all.

Dear Paula, Julie, Paul and Bill, Our hearts are heavy upon hearing of Jim's passing. So many good times we have had together. Packing the kids in for a trip to York Beach, Maine, in their younger years, brings back so many fond memories. Many happy, some sad times, we weathered together. We could always count on Jim for some good laughs when we needed them. We will cling onto the happy moments, as we realize we are blessed with good friends. Our love, peace and comfort to all of you. Mary & Dick Seaman
