My deepest sympathy to Lisa and your entire family. Sending prayers.

Josie and family - Jim was one of the good guys....he did so many kind things for people. I will especially remember his enthusiasm when he found an item from Bennington's past. He probably knew more about Bennington past and present than anyone I knew, and he was always ready to share his knowledge and information. I will miss our conversations, and I know Bennington will miss him - his smile, his laughter and his big heart. Keeping Jim and all of you in my prayers, Mary Reczek

Josie and family I was so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I would like to share a memory. It was New Years Eve. many years ago. all of the sudden at 6:00 PM I realized I had forgotten to pick up my dress at the cleaners. I called Jim at home and 20 minutes later with a friendly smile on his face he meant me and gave me my dress. A great guy.
