    To, George Sr., Marie, George,Christine,Tom, and Joe, I am so sorry. My heart goes out to all of you. Jimmy was taken from us all too soon. He was my high school sweetheart and the love of my life for a long time. You guys were like a second family to me and you still mean so much to me. He was such a good person too and I know it is because of the influence you all had on him. I'll never forget him or any of you. I know people always say if they can do anything for you, I mean it. I love your family and I will never forget Jimmy. All my love. Pam

    Dear Caurso family, I was so saddened to hear about the loss of Jimmy. I personally know how difficult this must be for all of you .I do remember my mother, and Jimmy's mother in the stands at John Jay cheering the boys on. I encourage you to draw on your strength as a loving family. He will always be cherished. You are in my thoughts and prayers, Love the "Harris Family" Tina

    Jim was defintly "one of a kind" and will be missed by all who knew him. He was such a blessing to many people, including myself. I will forever remember our talks and jokes at work. I will cherish his crazy drawings and "top 10" lists. We had the same sense of humor so sometimes we were the only two laughing in groups of people. To Kim and Michelle: If you need anything at all I'm just a call away. It seems I've known you and Jim forever and I hope it always stays that way.
