To Jim’s family and friends,
My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. Jim and I worked together at Allied for 10 years (1998-2008). He and I became good friends. In many ways he was a mentor to me. We both have the same initials JGB and a love for Notre Dame. He was so supportive of me going to ND for my MBA. I could tell he love his family. He spoke of his wife and boys often. HE was very proud of his boys!
I will miss his particular thing, his zest for life and his positive attitude. We will all see him again, just not yet. So, until then I will think of JB often when I raise a cold pint of Guinness.
God bless him and you all! Sincerely,
Dear Brennan Family,
Please accept our deepest condolences during your time of loss. I have very fond memories of your father while growing up with Pat, during Indian Guides and Pat & Sara’s wedding celebration. He will be missed.
Dear Brennan Family,
