    Dear Aunt Polly, Jimmy, Carol and Kathy. I'm so sorry to hear about Uncle Jim. I've been remembering your visits here with a warm smile on my face. I can still hear that singsong voice "everybody up"! My thoughts are with you. Love, Donalda

    Dear Aunt Polly We have such fond memories of you and Uncle Jim. Craig and I always admired how active you were and said we wanted to be like you when we are your age. Uncle Jim was a fun loving guy with an infectious laugh. He never seemed to mind the long trip north to visit your family and seemed to thoroughly enjoy himself while here. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts! Good bye "Jungle Jim"(as Craig used to say)! Love Toni

    Dear aunt Polly, Jimmy (I can't shake the habit), Carol and Kathy, It breaks my heart to have to say goodbye to uncle Jim. So many of my childhood memories feature him as the main star. Christmas in July just wouldn't have been the same without the famous Mirroware tea sets. There was still a stash of coffee pots at the old camp when we cleaned it out in August. Many cousins went home with some of uncle Jim's wares. I can't forget the time we were driving down Highway 101 and some American tourists were fishing off the shore... uncle Jim stuck his head out the window and yelled out "Go home damn yank!" Aunt Polly, I know how much mom and dad enjoyed their trips on Windemere with you both. The stories of Awesome would grow in proportion with uncle Jim's humour. He will be missed. Aunt Polly, I know you cared for him in these last few years... may you find comfort in the knowledge that he is in a much better place now. My thoughts went out to you at mass tonight, and my prayers in the weeks and months to come. Hugs and kisses to you all. Hélène
