Dad and Mom brought their young family from Northern Ireland to the USA to begin a life in a new land. Using a strong work ethic they were successful. In 2000 skin cancer was visible on one of Dad’s toes and soon spread over his body. Jim was the strongest man I have ever met. This horrible disease took away all his strength but not without a valiant fight. Jim died in 2004 on Easter Sunday . He was fortunate to have seen five grandchildren. We all miss him terribly and always remember him laughing the hardest at his own jokes.
Rest in Peace Dad.
