    Our most sincere condolences go out to Ann and the family on the passing of Jim. I (Lutz) remember fondly in the early days being invited into your home for lunch. I also appreciated all the help and advice received from Jim about the Jenner area and other agricultural issues from his time on the ASB for the county. Jim was truly an asset to the community and municipality throughout his life. May God's grace be with you at this time. Lutz & Judy Perschon.

    Anne and family, My sincere condolences go out to you and your family at this sad time. My late husband Jim always spoke very fondly of the times the two 'Jims' worked together from those long ago Government days. I, personally, will certainly never forget the many kind and thoughtful acts of friendship extended to us at the time of my husband's stroke (in 1996). Take care all of you, you are in my prayers. Faye Knoblick and family

    Please accept my belated but sincere condolences on Jim's passing. I was leaving the City when I read the obituary and was away on the day of the funeral. Jim was a true gentleman and a committed citizen of Canada and Medicine Hat. I always appreciated his political support and his gentle, wise persona. Bill Cocks

    To all of uncle James' family; please accept my very belated condolences. I've lost contact with my relatives many decades ago but still have found memories on the Liboiron family. Take care.
