    Although I did not know Jim closely, I know how much he loved and cared for Margie, that he was a wonderful guy and that she loved him back very much. They were very happy together and I know he will be so missed by all family and friends.

    Jim, I miss you so much. We have been together for over sixteen years. You left so suddenly that I didn’t have a chance to say goodbye. I don’t know how to live without you! You were and always will be the love of my life and I know you loved me more than life itself.

    You are now with your dear mother whom you loved so much, your sister, Mary and so many others who have gone before you.

    Fly high my love and keep a light on for me, until we meet again, I love and miss you, MY JIM.

    Jim was a good man and truly loved our mother Margie. They had known each other for 20+ years prior to becoming a couple. They found each other later in life but he lovingly cared for our mother and always wanted her happiness. We will miss him dearly and will have big shoes to fill in taking care of mom. I hope this great loss will be off set by bringing our family closer together as time waits for no one! Thank you to everyone for your love prayers and support. Sweet dreams Jim much love and until we all meet again.

    You were a good man with a BIG heart. Whenever anyone needed you, you were there for them.

    You were there for your mom, caring for her until it was time for her to leave this world.

    You were even there to help me take care of my ex (Danny) as he was also taken from this world.

    I could go on and on about the numerous times you were there for so many.

    No, you were certainly not perfect by any means, as like all of us, we are only human and there are reasons why some of us act out.

    Some of us are emotionally stronger than others and better able to cope with life when it looks dark.

    I can truly say that you tried many times to kick those monkeys off of your back. I have to give you credit for trying.

    I think that after sharing the last sixteen years of my life with you, I know what kind of man you have become better than anyone.

    I choose to remember all of the good that you have done in your lifetime as I hope others do as well.

    I love and miss you more than you could ever have known I would.

    Until we meet again, my love belongs to you! <3
