    So sorry to hear about Jim, his obituary talked about so many great things he did in his life but it would be impossible to tell every story of how he impacted people throughout his life.  For sure Jim was a one in a million and will never be forgotten.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Colombi Family.  Jim was a kind person who always was ready to help others.  He and my Dad were Past Presidents of the Verdi Club and were always coming up with something to enrich our club.  He will be missed by all that knew him.  The gates of heaven opened for him to join Rosie, all his relatives and friends.  God be with him.

    My thoughts and prayers to the Columbi family. Jim was instrumental in getting me involved in the ILBA, always an inspiration and great motivator. He was honest, lead by example and always supported the good of the organization. Jim made this a better world.

    I knew Jim through my father ever since I was very young. My dad thought so highly of and spoke highly of Jim and it was truly well deserved. He did great things for all of those around him and more. My sincere condolences.
