Nancy and girls,
I am so sorry for you loss. Jim was a nice guy that loved his family very much. I wish I could say the right words that would ease your pain. He was always treated my daughter Rebecca like a daughter of his own. May Jim rest in eternal peace. Hugs and prayers to all of you. If we can do anything, please do not hesitate to let us know.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Jimmy's passing. I had no idea that he had been sick. Jimmy and I grew up together in Rankin and were friends until I moved away in the mid-70's. I have fond memories of hanging out with Jimmy and our Fleet Street friends. I will always remember him as a sweet, likable, and funny guy. May he Rest In Peace.

Nancy, Janeen, Julia and the Zagorac Family
George and I offer our deepest sympathies. I loved Jim. He was a great husband to you and even better father to Janeen & Julia. To say Adam was beloved by Jim is an understatement. He truly loved Adam deeply; that was evident. He was so good with my grandchildren as well. They will all miss "Gruncle"- there are no words to bring you peace. No words to explain God's plan but find comfort in knowing just how much Jim was loved by all of us. Find peace in knowing his suffering has come to an end. May you find the love and prayers that surround you give all of you the strength to get through the sorrow of Jim's passing. We love you. We loved Jim.
Lisa & George
