All my memories of Jim were from his childhood. During the summer, I helped his Mom, Pat, care for all her children and also did the occasional babysitting. What I remember about Jim was his smile which sometimes became an impish grin. I always found him to be outgoing. I always loved my time with the Callaghan Family. It was a home filled with lots of love.

At St. Jude's Grade school, Jimmy was a very sweet boy and then, guy. He always had a ready smile and was fun to be around. Sending sympathies to all of his family.
