We are forever grateful to Dr. Julian Owen, and the neurological team at the Hamilton General Hospital for their expert care, kindness, and efforts to save Jim’s life.  The nurses that cared for Jim were angels on earth, they cared for him beyond our expectation, and exuded an unwavering compassion and empathy.

The love and prayers of our many friends gave us strength daily.  We are eternally humbled.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to your local food bank or charity of your choice.
