Condolences to the Family of James “Jim” Leo Berlo, Sr.


Stephanie, Jimmy loved you so much! When he spoke of you, his eyes lit up. It always warmed my heart. He will be deeply missed! Can't say I had a special memory as they were all special! ❤ I am here for you as you heal! I love you! Patti

The pain I feel in missing you only reminds me of how strong and beautiful the memories and experiences we have shared together are. How lucky was I to have shared 25 years with you in my life, Papa. I always admired you so much, from your whistles to your wit, I wanted to be just like you, Papa. You could always put a smile on my face, have me laughing until I cry, and never wanting our days together to end with Chrissy, April and I always asking for “just one more time” wheel-barrow racing around the house. I know Chester is so happy to have his best buddy with him again. You were always so strong, now it is time for you to be at peace. Thank you for all of the joy you have brought into my life, it is irreplaceable. I will miss you beyond words, but am so lucky to have you eternally in my heart, in our memories, pictures, and videos galore- thanks to you, camera-man, to hold onto and cherish you.

Aunt Stephanie My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Uncle Jim was a great guy and always had a smile on his face. He is now with his Brothers and Sister enjoying Dunkin Coffee and Jelly Donuts. May Uncle Jim Rest In Peace

Hi Papa, I love you and miss you more than anything. You were the best papa in the whole world. I have the most amazing memories with you. Just a few of them are going to Nantasket beach and the “horsey up and down,” eating “The Usual” at your house for dinner every Sunday, playing cards, trick or treating every Halloween in your neighborhood, making Jello together, horseback riding, the 4th of July cookouts at your house, going to Hawaii and Florida with you, Papa’s famous squash at holiday dinners, making wreaths every Christmas, visiting with muffins and pastries on Sunday mornings and you always finishing all of our last bites. Thank you for giving me so many unforgettable experiences beginning from my childhood all the way through high school, college, and beyond. Your sense of humor is something I will never forget. You were always making silly faces and comments. I laugh out loud when I think of all of our memories and stories together. Everytime I visited with you I had a smile on my face. I love you so much Papa. You make me so happy. Love your monkey, Chrissy
