"Roy family, my family and I are saddened to hear of Deacon Jim's passing in 2012. We remember him fondly from his time at St Mary's Star of the Sea. He was a blessing to our family in so many ways. We hold a special place in our hearts for him and your family. "Thank Deacon Jim for your support and love ❤️. Yes, Jesus truly does love us all!"

"Dear Papa -

I miss you always and think of you often - and this year is particularly bittersweet for me.

I remember when you were in the hospital at OHSU in Portland, we were talking one evening and I was encouraging you to keep up the good fight - and I promised that some day you would be able to perform my wedding.

I'm getting married this September - and I wish so much that you could be there to do the wedding. I wish so much that I could share in that with you like I promised a little over four years ago - and it hurts my heart that you won't be able to physically be there.

I do know, though, that you'll be there in spirit and I will be thinking of you on that special day and missing you every moment of it.

I love you - we all do - and we all miss you so very much.

Please look down on me and the entire family - pray for us - and I'm counting on you "being" at the wedding - I know you wouldn't miss it for the world.

Love you,

"It has been a year to the day since Papa has passed - and I know we all miss him every day.

It has been a long, hard year - but I know papa is looking over us all from a better place."

"I love you Deacon Jim. Thank-you for believing in me. Thank-you for mentoring me to be a teacher in the youth ministry. Thank-you for helping my son attain his Eagle badge in scouting. He might not have ever attained the rank without your help. As you said to me countless times, "Jesus loves you and so do I", I say the same to you. God bless all of your family and close friends."
