I grew up on the corner of 19th & Adams. I remember Jim well. I used to walk there to get a candy bar or can of pop after school every day. Jim was always had a ready smile and the patience of a saint as I carefully choose my "treat". My parents and 7 brothers and sisters all knew Jim by name, and he knew us all as well. I do recall that one week a year, someone would be there that I didn't know, brought in by the company, to cover while Jim was on vacation. Funny the things we remember and how people touch our hearts in unsuspecting ways...Rest in Peace Jim!

Barb, Mike, Steve, and Tim and your families: So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. I'm sure he is glad to finally be with Arlene after 12 years. The pictures in the gallery are just great! Thanks to all of you for being such good neighbors for many years. I'm not in very good health myself so I won't be attending the funeral. Please accept my condolences to you all and your extended families. Take care of each other and RIP Jim.

Whenever I saw Uncle Jim in La Crosse, his clothes were covered in oil and he smelled like gasoline. He was a hardworking and successful man and a wonderful father and Uncle. May he rest at the right hand of God.

God Bless Mr. Thornton and my deepest sympathies go out to his family. Mr. Thornton was a true gentleman who always took the time to say hello and ask how you were doing. I remember stopping in to say hi out at Consolidated. He also did a great job serving the community with his years of service on the Police and Fire Commision. I know Jim was proud of his children and they all followed his footsteps by becoming wonderful people...like their Dad. Again...God bless the Thorntons.

To Michael, Steve, Tim & Barb: I have many fond memories of your mom and dad from the years that I spent at Saint Pius X Parish. They were so supportive of the school and parish activities and the four of you. So sorry for your loss! RIP Jim! God Bless! Robert E. Kerska
