So very sorry to learn of Jim’s passing. He was a wonderful and loving man.
Jim was very kind to my family and me, putting us in touch with our mutual family in Lapio, Italy. Jim told me of his love for Lapio and the wonderful people who lived there and I was so happy to be able to understand his love for this amazing place and the warm and loving family members who make it their home. Godspeed Jim. I am certain you are at peace now. Enjoy your well deserved rest, in peace.
