Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I have many fond memories of Jim. We were close neighbors growing up always at each other’s home. Jim was older than me and I always wished I had his long legs when we walked to and from home from school— he could walk so must faster than me! I remember Jim and Maureen coming to Birch Hills each summer with Rob and Twila when they were little kids. Also, I enjoyed visits with Jim and Lily when they came back home. There was always a barbecue or a gathering! Rest In Peace, Jim! Deepest feelings of sympathy and hugs to you all! - Posted by: Ethel Rutherford (Cousin) on: Aug 14, 2021

  • My deepest condolences to Robert & Twyla. My heart is broken for you guys. The heart ache you both have felt over the last 34 years since your mom - Jim’s first wife Maureen passed away suddenly. You can be at peace knowing they have been reunited again and are resuming their love in Heaven. Together forever they will watch over you both. - Posted by: Heather Ellison (Daughter-in-Law) on: Aug 14, 2021
