  1. Cathy and David Williamson :

    We will be forever grateful that Uncle Jim and Aunt Jacqui were able to come for a wonderful visit last month. Uncle Jim was the best uncle ever and we hold the fondest memories of the time we spent with him. I will cherish the porcelain rose and the oreo cookie watch always. Our thoughts are with Aunt Jacqui and Jim Jr. at this very difficult time. Love always, Cathy and David

    Uncle Jim always brought happiness with him. As a young boy I remember how he lit up the room whenever he and Jacqui came visiting. And how cool was it to have “Mr Christie” as your Uncle. I remember the time he brought us boxes and boxes of “Mutant Ninja Turtle” cookies. They had been pulled from the shelves because as it turned out they had the unfortunate side effect of turning your pee green but were harmless otherwise.

    Uncle Jim made you feel special, was never judgemental and taught me that laughter was the best medicine.

    To Aunt Jacqui, Jim, Lisa and family you have our heartfelt condolences

    We will miss him
