I am saddened by the news of Jim’s passing. Jim was my cousin and also my oldest friend. I find myself thinking of our childhood and of all the adventures we had together. Our adult lives took us in different directions but when we occasionally saw each other it was as if no time had passed . I will always remember Jim as a dear friend who remained throughout his life somewhat of a rebellious figure and just a little larger than life itself.
Judy and I send our sincere condolences to the whole of the Browne family on the loss of a father and brother and our sympathies to the other significant people who shared his life.

The Browne family are in our thoughts. We were so sorry to learn of Jim’s passing.
David always enjoyed a visit with Jim when passing through Whitbourne.
Sincere condolences.
