So sorry to hear of Jim's passing, he will be missed by many. My prayers to friends and family. Jim was my very first boss, at age 13 I began to cashier at Terri's, the Wall St Deli. I credit his mentorship and work ethic for enabling me to reach my goals, where I am today. Jim I salute you, thank you for all you did for me, a true inspiration. Rest in Peace my friend.
I am so sorry for your loss. May God's promise found in John 6:40, of the hope to see our loved ones again, comfort your heart and give you peace, strength and hope in the days ahead
Karl, Theresa and Families...
On behalf of my family, we were very sorry to hear of Jim's passing. We all have fond and fun memories of Jim, "Big Theresa" and both of you from working in the stores. Jim was a character and Terri's Markets were part of the fabric of Kingston. Hope you find comfort in knowing he was a well respected man and lived a full life. While he will be missed. he must be happy to be back with your mom after all these years. He'll probably be looking to open a store in the afterlife!
