The end of an era! Jim was a wonderful man and sad to farewell him just short of a 100. He is with his maker and his beloved wife Winn at last. Condolences to the family.

I have had the great pleasure of looking after Jim and Wyn for the past 7 years here at vickery court, the love that they both shared for one another was very special in which they showed that every day. Since the death of his beloved wynnie jim has been very lost and spoke of her daily. So Jim go and be with your love she will be waiting for you at the gates and rest in peace together again xxx Maria Adamson Enrolled Nurse Vickery Court
