It is so hard to lose loved ones, and to have faith that they are in a better place, but we have to believe in our hearts that there is a beautiful afterlife and a banquet awaiting each of us when we die.

Evan WeaverWhat a shock to hear of Jim’s passing and my heart goes out to Terry and her whole family for their loss. I had the pleasure of working with Jim for over a decade and the privilege of having Jim and Terry as a friend for much longer. Both my children were in their youth through our working relationship. Now after additional decades have passed, they still have very warm feelings and fond memories of both Jim and Terry. I was very fortunate that Jim was there to keep an eye on the business in-order that we could still enjoy our own family time and travel. Thoughts and comments received since hearing the news include; kind, generous, a good guy, very talented, rising to the occasion and need, enjoyment of life, a very trusted man. A soul that can rest well, we will miss you Jim.
Beth CowdreyAndrea- I was saddened to read of the passing of your father. I believe I met him once when I was with you. He sounds like a wonderful guy . Our thoughts are with you . You will have precious memories of him when you were young & now with your own kids. Cherish them all. Beth

Cam LindseySorry to hear of the passing of Jim. Our condolences to all of the Doyle family. May pleasant memories help you through this difficult time.
John DoyleTerry,Andrea,Keith, and Yvonne and grandchildren. I hope you all, can see a way through this dreadful sadness. I shall miss my brother. We hadn't seen very much of each other in the last few years. I always seemed to be leaving Ireland, a couple of days before you guys arrived. I never thought Shay and I had too much in common, until we spent some time together in Canada some years ago. We were both inclined to see the humour and often, the Irony in situations nobody else could see. I think it's a Doyle thing. He was so much like Dad, a man who enjoyed a good pint of Guinness, who enjoyed listening rather than being listened to. Rest in peace brother. John
