    We loved you James Mulheron. You were the adopted parent and grandparent to me and my children. You celebrated all our family events with us and were a true friend. Our Sympathy to Jean, Deb and all the family.

    My parents would often play cards with Jim and Jean and I remember frequently visiting their home while I grew up. I was in awe of the pool table in the basement. Rumor has it I would run around the card table when I was really young and announce who had the joker during the games of 500 which probably didn't make Jim too happy. Indirectly, he probably has had some influence on my own 500 game today. Jim wasn't afraid to talk and I have fond memories of him. My condolences go out to Jean, Deb, and the rest of his family. He will be missed.
