I think I only knew one side of Jim. The side he saved for our family. Terry was the connector. She brought Jim to us and helped him become part of our family, even though sometimes he liked to keep his distance. So thank you Tess for bringing him into our lives. My memories include his broad smile, it was always there. The stories he told, the comments he made were always followed by a chuckle and that smite. It seems he found humor in everything.

I remember golfing with Jim at the old Canton golf course with his easy stride and plenty of pointers about my swing. Mostly, I remember the hikes with Terry and Jim. He really loved the outdoors. I know they spent a lot of time hiking together, and I’m just glad I was able to join them a few times.

Everytime our family got together it was a mystery whether or not Jim would join us. We’d see Terry pull up and we’d say, “Is Jim coming today?” She’d say, “I don’t know. Maybe.” And sure enough, right before dinnertime he’d stroll in, after a 5 mile walk, just to join us for dinner. A giant dinner, I might add.

I remember the rainiest wedding there ever was. We all looked like drowned rats. But Terry and Jim were both glowing and remarkable dry and smiling the whole day. Even though a hurricane came through it wouldn’t stop those two from getting married.

I want to thank you Jim, my brother, for giving Tess a good life. Standing by her and supporting her. We all love you and your spirit will be with us always .

I won't make the evening gathering but do plan to come to the service. I'm thankful to EBAD because they're offering to provide and compensate time off for it. To me the service is important because I can find peace with God and thank Him that I've had a really great friendship with Jim.
For all of my 11 years with EBAD I 'literally' saw Jim daily because our departments were right next to each other. Sometimes we'd engage in harmless fun. For instance we'd spot each other walking toward one another from a distance and we both would suddenly go into a 'Cowboy like' stance and try to out draw each other with imaginary pistols, then just carry on doing our jobs minding our own business. Also it was common for Jim to just yell out my last name (dropping the 'S') from extremely long distances away and I'd make a loud bird call or something back.
Sometimes Jim could be brutally honest about things too. You weren't always sure he was serious though. He would turn on a dime. He'd 'rag' on me about something to tick me off and then we'd just kinda laugh it off and walk away.
We were making plans to go fishing again soon. I'm sorry that won't happen.
Everyone at work knew Jim and a lot of people really liked him. His job title at work afforded him opportunities to be very helpful. I really believe he enjoyed it too. Being helpful. He will be sorely missed.
God bless and comfort you Theresa.
James, I'll bee seeing you brother.

To the Family and Friends of James Schrijn,
I work at the Ensign Bickford Aerospace & Defense Company and associated with James on a semi-regular basis. Over the many years, I have never been greeted by James without his great smile and pleasant countenance. I will miss him very much. Associating with the Shipping and Receiving Department is never going to be the same again. Rest in Peace, James.
