Dear Jimmy and Family,
We, here in New Hampshire, are feeling the sorrow of losing someone close to us. Uncle Jim always made time to stop and listen. He seemed to know something about everything, and had a light-hearted way about him.

He was an insightful quiet man of few needs; truly one of a kind. We loved him and will miss him.

Rest in Peace Uncle Shamus.

With Deepest Sympathy,

The Chinetti, Childs and Family
