    I am so very sorry to read this news. Only two days ago I was commenting to a group of Guardsmen about the wonderful job Jim did in adapting a history program for high school students. I loved being able to say he worked for me! May God bless you at this time.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Jim just once at the St. Mary’s Parent’s Day Weekend for freshman in February 2016. My daughter and Frannie are roommates. I sat next to him at dinner, we had a nice conversation and he shared some great stories of his experience as an educator. What a nice guy and good man. My condolences to the entire Cervone family. May he rest in eternal peace with our Lord.

Leave your condolences.
