  1. Deepest sympathy to Craig, Damian and families.
    Jim and I worked together 50+ years ago and as one friend commented recently, we had a great friendship even if it did get a bit fiery at times.
    We could go years without contact and just pick up where we left off. In hard times I would get a sympathetic and encouraging phone call from Jim and at the lowest point of my life he rang to offer his condolences and cried with me.
    Iā€™m sure we were opposites and happy to be so but we found enough in common to remain good friends for a lot of years.
    Jim missed Carmel dreadfully and I believe he has got his Christmas wish, I hope Carmel has too.
    He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by Jan and Bill Scott. Rest In Peace Jim. šŸŒŗ

  23. On behalf of the Gilmour family, I pass on our condolences to Damien, Craig and families. Jim worked tirelessly on the Litte history and was passionate about it. My mum, Bertie and Jim would often work together to record an accurate historical record. Jim gave me my first job at Gov Gipps and have some fond memories of that time.

  24. I have incredibly fond memories of Jim and Carmel. They have both meant so much to my Mum & Dad – Sue & Roger Vale. When Carmel passed earlier this year, I wrote to Jim passing on my condolences, reminding him how much Mum & Dad had thought of them both as a brother & sister. I received back a beautiful card from Jim, something I will forever treasure. I am so glad Mum & Dad had time with both of them before they passed. I said to Jim to enjoy his children & grandchildren during such a difficult time. I am sure he did. I am glad they are reunited. My sincere condolences to the family. Rest in Peace Jim and Carmel.
