    candle 8Uncle Jimmy,
    We will miss you dearly. You always made me laugh and always had a great big smile on your face. I learned more about the Civil War from you than in school. You had a great soul. You will be truly missed.
    Love
    Tanya, Don and Arabella Garbett

    Uncle Jim, you were a source of comfort and humor in my life growing up. Always there with a smile, joke, laugh, term of endearment and warm hug. Quick to help me with my first car, changing the oil, tune ups and of course your signature wash and detail. A man after my own heart with your immaculate tidiness! Family gatherings will be missing your familiar, warm and loving presence, wit and lively conversation. You always engaged all your great nephews and nieces too, teaching them about the Civil War, old Sci Fi classics and of course your beloved Stooges! They adored Uncle Jim! It’s certainly the end of a beautiful era without you and Aunt Cece and the love, support and positivity you brought to our family. Thank you for the gift of you! I know you are reunited with Aunt Cece and already quickly working to make her happy as you always did! Loving husband, father, brother-in-law, uncle, great uncle and more. Forever in our hearts and funny bones :). Rest In Peace and your love with Aunt Cece. Love, Jennifer

    candle 3My Dear Jim,
    I remember when you and your family moved into my Mom’s four family flat, we were all so young. Your grandma would wash her eyes with the rainwater she would collect, she claimed it helped her see better.
    I remember both of our parents sitting on the front porch drinking coffee.
    Who would have guessed you would end up marrying my cousin Cecelia. Miss you both, love Vita

    Matt, we send our thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Your dad was one of the good guys … we could sure use more like him in the world today.
    Our intentions were to be at visitation, but sadly, a health problem is going to prevent that from happening.
    May you hold fast to your faith and take solace in all the memories you have.

Rest In Peace my friend! Hug CeCe for me!
