    Jim was a man who cared deeply for others. All his volunteer work was done with a smile and a joke so as to give everyone else that smile that laughter to lift their spirits and make them feel better.
    That will be hard to forget as will be.

    My condolences to his loved ones.

    Sorry to read of Jim’s death. We were cousins, but never met in person. Enjoyed our email relationship – had many laughs over the jokes etc. that he sent to me.

    Dear Auntie Erva and family –

    Sympathy from all our family here in Alberta. Uncle Jim was such an amazing man who never seemed to age. The few hours we spent together in September in front of his computer, looking at family history, will always be one of my favourite memories.

    Sending you so much love,

    Dear McVey Cousins,
    Our deepest sympathy to you all.

    I just found out today about Jim’s passing. I have been missing his emails. We were family tree buddies. Jim was a generous man with a wonderful sense of humor. I’m going to miss that “Son of a Farmer”

    Best to you and yours,

    Still so hard to fathom that Uncle Jim is gone…he was always so full of life, happy, energetic & cracking jokes.

    This is how I will remember him!
