  • For a couple years in the late 1990’s and 2000, I got to know Jim. I knew who he was as I had known Primo years ago. Jim was going through some tough times, but was strong in his rebounding from those difficulties. He was making good on him promises to his family. I lost contact with him when I moved west, but I have memories of Jim as a guy who loved his family and the gifts he had. I miss you, Jim.

  • Michelle, John and Faye.
    I cannot begin to express our profound sadness over the loss of Jim.
    We have such great memories of hanging out at Uncle Primo’s and staying with you all during the summer
    He was such a warm and funny person…. and we certainly got into our share of mischief while we were there.
    We have thought of all of you often throughout the years and hope you find comfort in knowing how much Jim was loved by us.
