  2. Joel C. Hern says:

    Our sincere condolences to Judy and the Monaghan Family many of whom I have known since Jimmy and I met in the third grade and became Best Friends. Such was our friendship that even though I moved to Rhode Island in the ninth grade we remained friends and in contact with one another and visiting over the years. Such is the nature of True Friends.
    I will be missing him forever.
    Joel & Wife, Dee

    Condolences to the family of the man I knew as “Jimmy”. I met James through my uncle, Joel Hern. I fell out of touch when my family moved to California. However, the memories James and his brothers helped to create have stayed with me. Rest in peace, Jimmy.

  4. Tom Hawman says:

    I met James over 40 years ago when his brother, Gary, started to date my sister Alice. James seemed to be the quiet one one of the group as I spent time with Roger and Gary. I have some fond memories of James from my teenage years so many years ago.

    My family and I send our condolences to his wife, Judy, but especially his mom and dad.

    Tom Hawman and family
