    Liz, I am so so sorry. My heart is with you and your family.

    Finally meeting my fellow Tar Valon Scot was one of the highlights of my trip to the USA for Anni 2015 - and was made even better by Jaim being such a hilarious, warm and giving person. He will be sorely, sorely missed.

    There are no words when something like this happens. My sister lost her husband suddenly 3 years ago. This is what we learned.

    There is no right or wrong way to grieve. You do you. Take any help that is offered to you. You might think you don't need it or don't want to take advantage, but you do and you're not. Make allowances if the girls act out. If it happens in public, don't apologize. Grief support groups can help, as can the widows groups on Facebook. They've been there and can lend an experienced ear. It's ok if you don't want to be called a widow. Above all else, you and the girls come first and there is no wrong way to do any of this, so tell anyone who tries to tell you how to grieve to shove it. I'm betting Jaim would approve. Much love to you and your girls, and I'll lend a willing ear anytime.

    I can't find the right words, all that wants to come out are expletives. I am so sorry for your loss, and my deepest condolences to you and your family. He was such a huge part of this community and will be deeply missed. Lots of hugs, and lots of love.

    :hug

    Liz, I am so sorry, and am sending so much love to you and yours. Jim was always kind to me (and many others), and our interactions always made me laugh, and he will be sorely missed.

    Tower parties will never be the same, nor will this place. I have a hole in my heart from Jim's loss, and I know it is only the tiniest fraction of what you and your family are experiencing. I'm so glad that we got to see Jim again at Fall Ball 2018, and I'm particularly glad my son got to meet him there - it makes me happy that my whole family has wonderful memories of Jim to treasure. Liz we love you and we're here for you always. <3 :hug

    Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.

    Love Kajsa (Loira) and I.

    I only got to meet him just the once 9 years ago but the fond memory of it has stuck and makes me smile when thinking about it.

    Only Jim would mock me for being English and wear a Manchester United shirt and do it with a smile.

    A drink shall definitely be taken.

    Jim is a fantastic human being, taken from us far too soon. I am so sorry for your loss and I will be thinking of you and your family.

    I am so sorry for your loss, sister <3. You and Jim were among the first people I got to know in this community, and even though we don't interact as much as we once did I love you both fiercely. I don't think I have ever wished for Travelling or a bottomless purse more than I do right now.

    Jim...he was the 'troublesome recruit' and Soldier, the dependable Gaidin, one of the guys that's always been able to make me laugh so much my tummy muscles would ache for most of a Party. He were among the people who inducted me into the Woohoo Society (I think he was a bit stunned at how much the innocent Norwegian girl could drink once she set her mind to it!), he let me thwap him with that silly silver trout someone made for the first Europarty I went to close to Gothenburg, he comforted me when I cried more than once...online and in meat life, both. I remember laughing with him about silly Americans more than once, giggling (on my part) when you or another said silly Americans would 'pretend-glare' and huff about bratty Norwegians and Scots.

    May the Creator shelter you. I can't believe you're gone.
