"Dear McCarthy family, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband, father and brother. I was a high school classmate of Jim's many years ago and always remember his cheerful disposition and sense of humor. He was one of those people who got along with everyone and always had a smile on his face. I hope your memories will help you during this difficult time."
"I am so sorry to hear of your loss . Although our families haven't gotten together in years , I have fond memories of Jimmy always making me laugh when I was younger . He was a good man and sad to be gone so soon . I truly believe in my heart he is now with Matt , Mary and his parents , at peace . Again so sorry for your loss ."
