As I think of Jimmy I&m overwhelmed with the great compassion he showed for others. He was a family member who was happy to be in touch at any time, good or bad. You just knew he would be there for you.

I&ll miss his sense of humor and his warm laugh. There is now, and always will be a hole in my heart due to his absence. But also there will always be a warmth from his memory and the way he touched all our lives.

He will be in my thoughts and prayers for the rest of my life.

I want to convey my deepest sympathy to Jim and Judy on the loss of their son, Jim. I knew Jim through his father with whom I worked on the Lafayette Fire Department. As I recall, Jim was a very enjoyable and fun person to be around, always trying to lift the spirits of those around him. He was also dedicated to and worked hard for the causes he believed would help those in our society less fortunate. He will be truly missed.

I left thoughts on Jim&s Facebook page, but will leave some here as well. He was my Godfather! He sponsored me when I became Catholic about 22 years ago at St. Lawrence. I first met Jim 32 years ago when we worked together at CWY Electronics. I will always remember him as a friend to all, and I will miss him very much. He will always be ""Little Jimmy"" to me. My deepest sympathies to all of his family & friends.

Dear Jim and Judy,

We are saddened to hear of ""Yog&s"" passing. He was always such a hoot to be around even at a young age. He grew to be a wonderful human being and with that you should be proud. Please know we are thinking of you and praying peace comes to you knowing James is in good hands with our Lord.
