Condolence: Dear Marion and Family. We are so very sorry to hear about Pastor Jim's passing. It is always so difficult to lose a loved one. Brian and I have many fond memories of times together with you and Jim at your lake house, at the Cambridge SDA Church and at your home on Rockway Drive. I know you will lean on the Lord who is our comforter, rock and strength. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Cheryl and Brian

Condolence From: Don and Marilyn Topper
Condolence: We are remembering all the times we stayed at your home on our trips back and forth to Alberta. You and Jim always made us feel so welcome in your home and we enjoyed all our long talks and walks and updates on our families.I remember way back when you and Jim were dating and we saw his car in the church parking lot with an 'I'd rather be sailing' bumper sticker on it. Don and I thought it was hilarious, and I think that poor Jim was quite embarrassed...We have been friends for so many years...may God bless and comfort you and all your family in this time of loss.

Condolence: Marion and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. Jimmy and I spent many summers cottaging together at Paradise Lake, learning to sing, swim, dive, water-ski and canoe, and he was also my first ever New Year's date. I think we were 13, and the party was at church. We enjoyed being your neighbours as adults at the lake too. Our sincere sympathies to you all.
