So hard to put into words how much my family and I thought of Jim. Countless Friday nights Craig, Katie, Kenny, or I would look forward to Jim and Jean's arrival at The Allendale Bar and Grill, because no matter how bad our day was going, we could count on the 2 of them to put a smile on our face. A true gentleman, a wonderful person, we will certainly miss him. Jean and family, you are in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers. Love, The Kunisch Family Allendale, New Jersey
