We are sorry to hear of Jim’s passing, we enjoyed visiting with him and Donna, hearing about the lake house and especially biking with him around the grounds. We were blessed to have him as a neighbor, they all looked out for each other and enjoyed meals together. Our condolences to the family.
Uncle Jim was an affable guy who always had good advice for the nieces and nephews. Visiting him and Aunt Donna always was a pleasure. They were generous with food and refreshments in the old world Nasto tradition. He also liked to exercise, including riding his bike several miles to our house to visit his sister Chris.
After I moved to Texas, I looked forward to their visits with their son and my Cousin Jim also in Houston. We enjoyed swims in our pool, great food and card games like Eucher. He was a sly competitor at cards. I will miss his hearty laugh, good cheer, stories from the past and always insightful advice.
My mother Chris always asked about his well-being and dearly loved him. Called him on his birthday for many years. I know his brother, sisters and parents before him welcomed him in Heaven.
