  1. I am Jim’s youngest sister and since our ages were quite different I don’t have many memories of him while living at home, but he has left a lasting impression on me as an adult. Jim was always full of laughter, always looking at the fun and joy of life… I will miss you Jim and hope you are enjoying the growing Reimer family choir in heaven! I send my love and condolences to Jimmy, Greg, Don, John and families.

  4. They, Jan & Jim were so excited about going to Mexico. It just doesn’t seem right. They wanted so much for me to go there with them. Maybe it would have been different and they would still be with us. My deepest condolences to the family. They will truly be missed.

  5. Brian and Audrey Henderson :

    Our hearts are so saddened by the loss of Jim and can’t imagine how the family is coping with the loss of such a kind hearted and giving man.

    Brian and I were so fortunate to have him as a friend and share wonderful stories. We knew Jim for several years but yet.. way to short. He always spoke so fondly of family and his time in Manitoba and shared his industry talent stories with us as well and there would never be a loss of words when we got together.

    He was so knowledgeable in every way and we so very proud to have him as our friend.

    I remember, like yesterday, glancing back at both of them when they came by to say goodbye…. I just didn’t know it would be the last time.

    Jim, and with your partner Jan, will be in our hearts forever and truly missed.
