For the past 2 1/2 years I had the most amazing pleasure of Mr. Tolles' daily visits to my post office in MacTier. His infectious smile and friendly spirit always made my day a whole lot brighter. I will truly miss him and his quick wit. May you all be blessed with very heartwarming memories of his journey and love in life. God bless


Our sincerest sympathy to Bertha and family on the passing of Jim Tolles. Both Jim and Bertha have been incredible examples of faithfulness and strength as we would see them regularly attend Mass at St. James the Great in MacTier for many years. Eternal rest grant unto Jim and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
