Dear Barb,

I’m very sad to hear of Jim’s passing. I know it’s been many years, but I remember Jim as warm, generous and very welcoming while I was in Harrisburg.

Dear Barb, Katie and Brendan,
We were shocked and saddened to learn of Jim's passing. Although we didn't know him very long, we found him to be an ever smiling, gentle man who was a very good next door neighbor. We pray the good memories of your life together will give you strength and comfort. Our warmest regards, John and Linda Rozzi
