Oh, Monica. I just read about Jim. We are so very sorry. Jim was a wonderful, warm and funny man. He was always willing to help anyone who needed it, and always with a smile. I always smile when I remember coming into work and seeing his picture upside down on your cork board, what a fun relationship you had. I am so glad that you were able to travel after your retirement. I will be praying for peace and comfort to you in the months ahead. Barb and Rick Roby

Uncle Jim was an amazing Uncle. Him and his wife (Aunt Monica) were so good to us nieces and nephews. One of my favorite memories of Uncle Jim was visiting him in Virginia and having Easter Dinner aboard his Navy ship. That was my favorite memory but there are so many more. Visiting him in NYC, where Aunt Monica brought me to Macy's or playing games on Uncle Jims first Apple computer in Saratoga. I spent days with them in Sacandaga and so many holidays at Papa Woozies house. My heart is broken for my Aunt Monica, and for my Dad, Aunt Heather and Aunt Missy. Growing up in this family was a blessing, I was introduced to so many family traditions that I have carried on with my own children. I will never forget and never take for granted what a caring and generous family I had the honor of growing up with. I love you Aunt Monica.
