Jim was my son's godfather; we couldn't have chosen a more honorable person. He stood for everything that was good. I have wonderful memories of our families growing up. We had good times.

He was truly a member of The Greatest Generation!!! I wish I could be at the Memorial Mass but unfortunately we are preparing to go to Arlington National Cemetery to inter Suzanne's mother's ashes alongside her father's.

I certainly know what a great loss this is to you and the extended family. Never better husband and father!!
