"It has been two years since your passing and the loss of you is still so tremendous. Reflecting upon the rare qualities you possessed, I am continually struck by your courage, effortless good humor and wit, your humility and compassion and your consistent positive outlook, even during hard times. I continue to learn so much from you and the life you lived, even though you are no longer here. I emulate these qualities of yours, and much more, and try to instill the lessons you taught me in your great grandchildren. Dad, you are greatly missed – each and every day – you are in our hearts and on our minds. Sending love from all of us – Sam, Ruby, Alex and I, to you, dearest grandfather, we love you so much"

"Not a day goes by without missing you, Pops: your unconditional love, your guidance and strength, your uplifting voice and wonderful laugh and personality, your great sense of humor, smart advice, and helpful support, your inimitable—often hilarious—take on life, your thoughtfulness and positive outlook, the way you always listened, raised my spirits, cheered me on, and encouraged me to be a better person. Through all the ups and downs we shared in this life, you were always there for me, without fail. Thank you, for all of it, for everything you gave me and did for me, for being a splendid father. Rest in peace, my dearest, handsomest Dad, my truest ally, most-trusted confidant, and greatest friend. Love you always and forever, your fortunate daughter."

"I have met many good people in my life, but Jim ranks up there with the best of the best. From the minute I met him I liked him, and within a short time came to love him like a brother. If more people were like him, we would have peace in the world, and a lot more laughter. I will hold the memory of him forever in my heart."
