Had wanted to come for the funeral. Can get up there, but flights are full coming back. Dale has a skin cancer surgery on Tuesday morning. Can't chance not being here. So many memories of Jim through the years. I have a record of him singing "Seven Lonely Days" when he was about seven. That's been going around in my mind today. I will miss his wit, smile and all around good cheer. So thankful you have a wonderful family to surround you with comfort and love, Lynn.

So sorry to hear of Jimís passing. He was truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed. Meeting him was always the same Ö a big smile, direct eye contact, arm quick to extend, firm handshake, and right into the conversationÖit almost seemed like an automatic reflex for him.  Definitely going to miss that.
I often think of the summer of í86 and the trip to Parry Sound, Ontario with the Hall family. Whether it was fishing, playing games, making campfire pies, or chasing bears out of the campground, Jim had a gentle nature and quick wit in all matters.  It was always evident to see how much he cared for those around him.   So glad and thankful to have had the opportunity to spend some time with him and his awesome family.

Go rest high on that mountain, Jim, your work on earth is done.

Jim and Lynn made me feel so welcome when I joined the Hall family many years ago and I will never forget their many kindnesses. Jim had a way of seeking people out and making then feel like they were the most important person in the room. He  always checked in with everyone at family gatherings  and was sincerely interested in how we were doing. This made a big impression on Hillary and she enjoyed visiting with him, even in her shy, younger years. While we can rejoice in the knowledge that Jim is catching up with his mom and dad, Uncles Ted and Meredith, son Mike and so many others in heaven, there is going to be a big hole here for the rest of us who so enjoyed being in his presence. We will never forget what a peach of a guy he was but we will miss his smile and his unconditional love.
