Jim once told me in a conversation that He once took part in painting US Navy ship. Since that time I have visited and seen multiple Navy ships. When I was in Virginia I had the opportunity to see several US Navy ships in the full glory. I was thinking about what he said, and what a challenging task Jim participated in. His humility in accomplishing such a vigorous task, made me realize that Jim was extraordinary man and I had pleasure to meet him.

Jim always made me smile. He always had something nice to say and a good joke to tell. I am lucky to have known and even luckier to have been in his family.

Ed and Gerry,
We reach out to you with deep love filled with compassion and seeking God's embrace upon you both during this loss. Difficult to understand why but we have faith that this new year symbolizes his new and eternal life in the presence of the Trinity and the saints of God!
Our prayers for him began from the moment we read about his passing, as we pray for both of you as well. With deep respect, Joe and Dorothy Macieląg
