We were sorry to hear about Jim's passing. There are many good memories over the years with all the cousins getting together for birthdays, holidays and times at the lake. Our thoughts are with the Conway family during this difficult time.

Although I only knew Jim for the last year of his life. I am blessed to have known him. He shared so many stories of his sons and grandchildren.

So many stories of his time at his lake house.

Taken much too soon!

My condolences to his family.
