Many happy memories of my brothet-in-law Jim,who was in the navy when he married my sister Norma. He would bring me back dolls from the places he visited and he will be sorely missed. But he's with Norma now,and Avril too. Rip. Xxx

We will truly miss my uncle jim, better known to me & my sons as Big Jim. Despite an ocean between us I'm glad he got the chance to watch his great nephews grow into young men. A fabulous karaoke singer & showman. A star amongst the stars. Love Linsay, Owen & Nathan. Xxx

My sincere sympathy, Jim and Ruth, and extended families. I didn't know your Dad well, but I did meet him once and learned we both shared the same birthday May 29th. xo
