I am so sorry to hear of Jim's sudden passing. It was truly shocking news. I feel blessed to have had the pleasure to know such a warm and kind gentleman and will remember him best from my visits to Myrtle Beach in March of this year and last year. Vivien, you are in my thoughts at this difficult time. I wish you comfort in the days and weeks to come.
Most sincerely,
Jennifer Cuming Longtin

I am so very sad to hear of Jim's sudden passing. He was such a lovely man, funny and very kind. I remember well the conversations at mum and dad's 50 th anniversary party with both he and Vivien, not to mention how they both came to all of my daughters hockey games when she had a tournament in the Montreal area last season. My thoughts and prayers are with Jim's family at this very difficult time, Vivien I am so very sorry for your loss, my deepest condolences.
