Warnner Family, So sorry to learn of your loss. I only had the pleasure of Jim's company one meal at the Cracker Barrel in Wrentham, but enjoyed e-mail postings from and with him for several years. He was certainly one of the good ones, taken from us much to soon.
Please remember the good times.

I met Jim at a Ramasun Vets reunion some years ago. For some reason, we hit it off and became great friends. I visited him in Massachusetts a couple of times and he visited me in Virginia a couple of time.
His wife Sam was and is a great lady. She is truly the cement that bonds people together.
While I am saddened at Jim's passing, I know that he is with the Lord and out of pain.
I look forward to joining with him one day.
Jim was a great one.

I've been a friend of Jim's on the Army Security Agency website in which many belong. I looked forward to his postings while in Thailand. I was stationed in Germany for 16 months that Udorn Thailand for 19 months, 1967 thru 1971. I wished I went to one of the reunions that Jim attended. I am also a United Methodist Church member for my entire life. My prayer's are with Jim's family! I know he is in a great place above.

I cannot tell you how sorry I am at Jim's passing. He was my favorite brother-in-law. We always had a special bond, but I know now he is at peace and will not suffer anymore. I sure am going to miss those Ma. phone calls. You kids are going to have to take his place. Give Sam hugs for me.

I was very sad to hear of Jim's passing.
Jim was a gentleman and one of the nicest men I met while working at BAE.
We worked together at BAE Systems for about ten years at the Hudson facility.
and shared many pizza lunches with several of our BAE brothers.

Sam, Sorry for your loss. I knew Jim from the school at Devens. And you booked many TDY trips for me. Four years is a long time to suffer and I know that Jim is resting at peace now... Keep the Faith, and know that God is looking over you and your family...
