    My parents, Eric & Margaret Brookwell, and I wish to send our condolences to you for the loss of Jim. We only knew him for the last few weeks of his life while he was roommates with Eric at the Rockeview Hospital. I had the pleasure of having many chats with Jim. I loved that he wore his green Rough Riders t-shirt while enjoying his football games on TV. He was also very proud that he enjoyed his meals so much. I’m sure you will miss him very much.

    Terry and Cindy and family. I was shocked to read of Jim’s passing. Jim was a dear friend. I can not count the times that Jim put Karin and my milk on the cuff until we got paid. I still laugh about all the good times Jim and Carolyn and us had up at the hall. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. God bless you all from us all on PEI. Wish I could have paid my respects in person.
