So very sorry to hear of the family's tremendous loss... we had no idea of his passing. May the Holy Spirit bring comfort and peace to those who remember him fondly. Jim was a beautiful and generous soul and the past 13yrs, a generous donor. Jim took great delight with being a part of our legacy, our mission to care for the poorest of the poor... Children, Families, Orphans, Elderly, Jobless, Homeless and the Sick...which speaks of his own legacy. Though Jim will be dearly missed it is certainly Heavens gain!!! May he rest in eternal peace!.
Warm regards,
Francis

Jimmy and I pledged for the PR's together in 1962. He was a great friend , PR and served his country with pride. I was fortunate to reconnect with Jimmy a few years ago and we exchanged emails. Mike Walsh, a fellow PR, "found" Jimmy a few years ago. My sincere condolences to his friends and family.
