Dear Gerry and family,
So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Enjoyed bridge with him these past few years. He had a knack for the game as well as a wonderful sense of humor. Enjoyed his many stories and will always remember his laugh. Unfortunately we will be out of town this weekend for calling hours and the memorial service - so very sorry I can't attend. Jim was a good friend, a good man, and a good bridge player. Peace, Mitch Mills

To Gerry and the whole Weiss family: Bev and I send our most heartfelt sympathy. We are in North Carolina visiting our daughter but wanted to let you know just how sorry we were to hear of Jim's passing. He was a great friend who will be deeply missed. There are so many great times to reminisce about-from golf trips in Mexico to cards at my house, they will be treasured memories of a great guy for me.
