Jim did the polls for the election for many years
I had the pleasure of serving with him
He was absolutely wonderful
He also had a beautiful voice
I heard him sing a few times for various public events

Jim (Mr. Vig, when I was younger) has been a part of my family since Catherine and Jimmy were dating in High School. I have a life time of memories of him and Jean. But I think my favorite one will be of him just this past summer when I went to visit him with Catherine and Jimmy. It was watching Jimmy and him play cards and the winner I believe got 1 or 2 million dollars. I could be wrong on the money amount. His laughter filled the room and his smile lit it up. All my love, Frannie

Dear Marilyn, James, Donald. And Family. My wife Michelle and I will unfortunately be un able to attend the family services for Uncle Jim. Uncle Jim was my confirmation sponsor, and we also shared the same job in life as truck drivers. I would always love to hear him sing, when I was able I would feel at ease. He will be missed, please our sincere condolences.
Love Paul & Michelle Lawrence

Dear Marilyn Jimmy,Donald and family,
I'm so sorry for your loss. Many stories were told to me of this amazing couple by my husband Danny. Uncle Jim spoke so proud of his children and grandchildren, "It is what it is". Uncle Jim and Aunt Jean are together again. May their love of life and family get you through this difficult time.

Love Karen Williams
