    Uncle Jim,
    The world lost a great man on Sunday. We all have so many fond memories of time spent in Wilmington. Summers at Peter’s Pond on the Cape with the whole family, or Papoose Pond in Maine would not have been the same without you. I especially loved when you took us to the drive in movies. I will always remember you as the uncle you could always count on to be there when you needed him. You would have given the shirt off your back to any of us without hesitation. As usual, age and distance may have limited the time we would all spend together, but we will never forget the special man you were. We all love you very much. Condolences to the rest of your family, and I hope they can take comfort knowing that you are at Peace now.

    Grampy Jim,
    Some of my earliest and fondest memories are when you would watch us while my parents went on vacation, I lost count of how many meals you and Grammy treated us to. Countless trips in the back of one of your new station wagons to get ice cream in Moultonborugh and fun trips to the nearby beach. You always made the whole family feel welcome to your home during the holiday’s. You will be very missed, thank you for all the good memories. Love always, Elysha
