  1. I will always remember my cousin Jim. As kids he would come to Kenmore to visit a couple times a year and take care of all the bullies in our neihborhood. Of course we also visited Mill Village often and it was a very enjoyable time for our family. Jim and his siblings always treated us city dwellers well. I am very sad about Jims passing and wish the family well.
