Memories Timeline


  1. Our Uncle Jimmy was always family first and loved his nieces and nephews. He loved to go fishing and took me and my cousins blue fishing on charter boats in Point Pleasant NJ when we were in our early teens. We often filled burlap bags with fish and had to give muc away. He always had a smile on his face, even to the end!

  4. Mrs. Dallas,
    Spiro and I and our family wanted to express our sincere condolences for your loss. We were saddened to hear of Mr. Dallas's passing. We always had very fond memories of your husband. Thinking of you during this difficult time and I am sorry we could not be there at the funeral being that we did not know. May his memory be eternal.

  5. Dear Mrs. Dallas,

    Mr. Dallas was a classic gentleman and a great role model. I was just talking about him to my Son on Sunday and sharing his words of wisdom. From the moment I became active in our Church, I felt his love and support. Maybe its because he knew my Dad or maybe because I am a Makedona but whatever the reason I loved him like an Uncle and we shared many beautiful moments together. I will never forget him. May his memory be eternal! Our sincere condolences to you and his loved ones!
