I was saddened by the passing of Jimmy, whom I knew both as a patient and a fellow Lions Club member. He and Sue were two of my first patients when I started optometry practice in Michigan City. I will miss Jimmy's jokes and his fellowship. My sincerest condolences to his family. I hope they find some comfort in knowing their loss is shared.

Susie, Lynn & Janie, I will miss your Dad. He was a great person to know and a person who I will never forget. We had great times playing cards and going out to dinner with friends from the M.C. Senior Center.

Our hearts are with you at this sad time. We will miss your father, he was such a sweet man. We will never forget his big beautiful smile he always seemed so happy to us. He was a very thoughtful man never forgetting our birthday's or anniversary. That meant a lot to us. He will be missed. We read the most beautiful quote the other day we would like to share with you. "In the end,it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years" written by Abraham Lincoln We just found that to be so true. Again, we are so sorry for your loss. Love, Kathy and John Wirtz

He was more than a cousin to me..He was a friend who had the gift of bridging the generation gap. Eager to learn the newest technologies so we could always stay in touch with the ones he loved. He blessed me with 3 wonderful cousins who all share his gifts of goodness and humor. I will miss you, Jim, because of the joy in your heart and the laughter in your soul...Rog

To Jimmy's daughters and family. I am glad that I had the opportunity to speak with your father through the internet. He was, as always, upbeat, funny and that sense of humor; not many could replace (except Armand and Marty). As you know, my Mother and your Mother and Father were very close friends and we will miss your father as we did your Mom, very much. May his memory be an everlasting blessing to those that knew this fine gentle-man.

My heartfelt condolences to Jane, Lynne, and Sue. Though your loss is great, it is my hope that the good memories I know you have of life and times with your dad buoy you as you deal with your loss. I well remember Jim from many visits to your house in Edgewood as a high school student. Though me and my friends were a pretty wild bunch Jim always had the grace to be a warm host. Indeed, his spirit lives on in you. Rest in peace, Mr. Gole.

I don't think I ever met anyone who enjoyed life as much as Jim. He was a joy and a delight to be around. I loved his enthusiasm regarding computers and technology. I will miss receiving his fun animal picture emails and providing him with tech support. His memory will most definitely be a blessing to us all!
