    We are so sorry to her of Jim’s death. We were also Montclair Elementary parents and knew him from his very generous volunteerism there. May his memories live on with you forever.

    My sincere condolences, Rose, to you and your family.

    Rose, I was so sorry to hear of James passing. I noted he was a United Way Volunteer of the Year. I was fortunate enough to have several of my volunteers receive this award so I am well aware of how prestigious this was for him and you. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family .
