Jim's infectious joy and humor made him a pleasure to be around. He took your family to some interesting places and I know you will treasure the experiences you shared. Betsy and I are praying that you feel the Lord's presence during this difficult time."
Jim personified the song when Irish eyes are smiling. He made every meeting room brighter with his pleasant demeanour and every golf game together more fun with his skill and wit. We will miss him. Our sincere condolences to you and your family."
"Helen, and Family, Sincere condolences on your sad loss, the sad news filtered through to us, in Whitegate, over the last few days. I have fond memories of growing up with Jimmy and attending National School together. We had wonderful summers, fishing for crabs, swimming in Whitegate Bay, and playing Cowboys and Indians in Day's Wood, and of course all the fun and games at our Annual Regatta, to mention just a few of the things we got up to, innocent times, and happy days. We are thinking of you all today, we will raise a glass in memory of Jimmy this evening and remember his Dad and Mum, Mary, and Patrick and you the family on this very sad occassion.
"May the road rise with you, and the wind be at your back, Go raibh an ghaoth I goonai ar du chul, agus Go n-eiri and bothar leat. Colodah Samh a cara agus slan agus Beannacht, Anne Sweeney (nee Sheehan)"

"Dear Helen, Jim's sense of adventure brought him and the family to many shared places around the world. His mischievous sense of humour kept us on our toes and was something that brightened our lives. He was someone who was part of our journey around the world for many years and will be sadly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family."
