  3. Janet & Ed Fletcher :

    We are saddened by the passing of Jim. As a pesky younger cousin, I (Janet) remember Jim as always happy, patient and kind. He was always willing to entertain us by playing the piano, showing us the new tricks Percy the budgie had learned, playing card games and Monopoly with us or letting us read the huge collection of comic books he had. He will be sadly missed by many. Our sincere sympathy to Jerry and all who were close and knew Jim for the good person he was.

    My condolences go to Jerry in this moment of sorrow, as well as for Jim’s family. The Faith and Hope, in our hearts, bring us to believe that one more time we’ll be reunited with all those ones that have been important to us in this mortal journey. In that belief I rest assured that one day Jim and Jerry will be together forever.

  6. We can’t even imagine what it must be like to loose your partner after 44 years together. You both were always something I looked to when I realized who I was and showed me that two men can live a happy life together when I was young and struggling with who I was.
    I hope you and my mom can find comfort in each other and I know Jim left on his journey with comfort that you have a very good friend right next door.
    We will be thinking of Jim today and have dedicated a tree in our yard in his memory
    Rob, Greg, Brooklyn, Benji, and Mr Wiggles in Haliburton

  7. My sincere condolences Jerry. While with the then PCI, I valued Jim’s commitment and time. He shared much of himself and I appreciated not only his sense of humor and calm ways but his many travel stories and tips.
