Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family through this difficult time. God Bless!
We met Jim through St. Catherine's of Siena Parish. He was a great guy, made you smile and laugh. He really cared about the church, people and active in Town. He had wonderful stories and let us know about the upcoming events in Town. We enjoyed listening to the readings he did at church. Strong voice.
We miss him terribly and his wonderful laugh.

The Curley Family
