Jim always would greet me with a smile and warm conversation. I admired him as a father to my sister in law Jen and. grandfather to my neice and nephew Samantha and Bobby. He had a quietness about him that spoke pretty loudly to me. It stood out in our loud family. Im sorry to be in this club myself and that you had to join it too ,Jen. Im thinking of you and the kids.

So sorry to hear of Mr Lambert's passing. I have fond memories of dialing 4617 and chit chatting. I'll never forget the good times on Wells Ave. Prayers for your children and family that they celebrate your life with a smile and warm heart.

I really loved his artwork. Lots of colour, texture and depth. A wonderful grandfather to our children. When he would greet me he would say, in a bellowy tone, "Robert sir!"

So long Jim.

You requesting me to bring my infant children over so you could hold them, and smell there heads will be a memory I will cherish forever. May you spend eternity cradled by gods love.
