  1. Dad,
    I will always hold you close with memories of good times or sad, because every memory is a treasure I never want to lose. My tears will fall and my heart often break, yet knowing you are no longer suffering will help to ease the pain.
    I love you ~ Maureen

  2. I only met Jim once or twice in my life, but I feel like I knew him through my 28 year friendship with his daughter, Maureen, my BFF. She loved and admired her dad. Being unable to support Maureen at this time is so difficult, but she knows I’m there in spirit.

    Jim: Know that I will be there for your daughter as soon as I am back in Calgary. You raised a wonderful, loyal, dedicated daughter and I love her dearly.
