Rest in peace my sweet Uncle Jim.
He was one of the most creative and artistic individuals I've ever known.
I will never forget how he taught me all about Fabergé eggs and I became completely fascinated with them. Everytime I see a decorative egg, I think of him. He'd also entertain the entire table at a restaurant by making exquisite origami out of napkins and he could decorate the most elaborate Christmas trees you've ever seen. He gave me my first haircut and my first little job at 14 sweeping hair at casa Bella on Saturdays. I will always remember the good times with him ❤️

I am so sorry for your family. Jimmy always made me laugh and had the silliest names for Vicki and I. I miss my sisters every single day and keep them alive with my memories, prayers, pictures and thoughts. I'm sure Roberta and Valerie were right there at the gate to welcome him home. Hugs and Prayers to all of you.

I was saddened to hear about Jim’s passing so soon after my mother’s. I so enjoyed spending time with him and you at Trueman Pointe. His laughter and smile helped all of us get through the challenging days. Patti, you were a loving, dedicated sister. I know how you monitored his care and looked after his needs. He certainly loved you for everything you did.

Uncle Jim, it seems like yesterday you were giving me and my sisters perms. You cut my hair for my first modeling gig and did my hair for my Wedding Day. That was so special and you were right about it being “timeless”. Too many beautiful memories with my cousins throughout the years . From our swimming days, synchronized swimming acts, love and laughter. The sleepovers were always so much fun! I loved helping you in the kitchen as you showed me how to cook a 3 course meal for 30 Italians, you made it look so easy. Thanks for all you have done for my Mom and my family. We will cherish the memories. Love you

Dear Patty, Don & Families,
I am brokenhearted to hear that Jim has passed away! We share so many good memories through the years! I loved the times our whole family got together at your houses or Grandma Policaro's. We always had such a good time laughing and enjoying Italian food. Jim was always so kind & funny too. And then there were the many years that Jim fixed my hair. Boy the styles of changed since then. No more bu fonts. I love you all so much and regret we are unable to be there, during this difficult time. It takes a weeks planning to get there these days, with obligations at home to coordinate. May Jim R.I.P. Loving prayers for all the family. Rose Ann & Jim Skinner
