Hello "Dad"

Well, it's almost Valentines Day and I know that Tina still misses you as much as the day you left. Sometimes "Special Days" are worse than other days, and I can only imagine the pain that she goes through daily.
Tina has truly been a dear friend to me, and I know that you would have been also.

Well, as I have said before, my Pistol and I still talk about Tina and how she talked about your dance together....I will never forget that!! The love she felt and STILL feels for you was and IS forever in her heart.

Well, Happy Valentines Day "Dad"...

Dad,

Well, it's almost Thanksgiving, and Christmas will be here before we know it. I know your sweetheart Tina misses you so much. She talks about you with such tenderness and love. I truly know you are the love of her life.

She shared something with me, I hope you don't mind.... she shared with me about your dance that you and she had.... she tells me to always dance with the love of MY life, my Pistol.... and what a sweet sentiment she has of that dance. I know there HAD to be many ... many more of those dances in the past....but the one she told me about what the dearest to her, I think.

You are so missed by Tina, and even though I never have met her, I feel as though our bond is so close knit, that we are as sisters.

Wait for her Dad...don't give up on her...she'll be there when our Father in Heaven is ready for her....

I know from Tina's description of you, that you are singing with the Angels....

Till next time....

Well, it's almost another year. 2007 !!! Makes a person feel old, especially when their grandchildren ask about "The Olden Days".

Chatted with Tina last night, and she helped me win another badge. She is so sweet to help everyone...

She surely misses you, there is never a conversation between us that she doesn't talk about your "Special" love that was between the two of you.

Until you meet again, she knows you are waiting for her, as she is waiting to see you again.

Hi Dad,

You don't know me, but I know that precious wife of yours. She has been such an inspiration to me. The love that she is forever spreaking of that she shared with you is amazing. I feel that my husband and I share the same unconditional love that you and your Darling Tina shared.

I just want you to know....that sometimes when someones loved one goes home to be with Jesus.....time.....does help....but I feel such a heaviness when chatting with the love of your life...that she is missing you just as much now...as when you first went Home to be with your Lord. Hopefully, with many prayers that I have sent up for Jesus to ease her pain...she will have a Peace to come over her....until you meet again Dad.....

MoM Loves Dad Forever and Ever Until Death Did You Part....and Then Dad...Mom STILL Loves you!!!!!

Tina's Friend,
Lynnie

Jimmy was one of five children, born in northern Maine to Harold and Dorothy McCluskey.

Most of my memories go back to those years. I was the oldest and Jimmy was next to me.

Those were hard years for all of us. Running a dairy farm in the cold North. Jim and I were really expected to pull a heavy load. We did it because Dad expected it of us, but I have to say it was tough. But there were many bright moments and we loved one another and we knew our parents loved us.



Jim was the one of us that stood out. He always was looking for a way out of all the work required. He was very mischevious and it seemed like he did not mind getting in trouble. He was always looking for some fun.



But how we loved Jim even when we were so mad at him. I remember chasing him around the house with a chunk of wood, determined to hit him hard if I ever caught him. But of course, I did not catch him. For some reason I seemed to be easy prey for him and he teased me a lot. But he was a charmer and could talk his way out of most anything. Dad used to say he could sell igloos to Eskimos. He sure was the apple of his Mother's eye. How she loved her rambling boy!



Music meant so much to him. Dad got him a harmonica first and it was not long before he was playing it just fine. Then Dad took him to Robinson's music shop and made a deal with Mr. Robinson to get Jim a guitar and just like the harmonica, it did not take him long to catch on to that. And he had such a voice! I would suppose the angels stopped what they were doing to listen to his voice. I was always sure he would make his living with music. We never saw Jim much, but when we did, it was sure an occasion! He would put his arms around us and we felt like queens for a little while.



He came home in 1985 and we had a reunion and he was the star and we had a great time. That was the last time he saw his Mother. He sure made her and us happy that summer.



I am so glad that I had a chance to spend some time with him about a year and a half ago. We had a great time and I will always remember Jim standing in the rain in front of McDonalds in Conroe, dancing a jig and sweeping his hat off his head as we pulled out of the parking lot heading home. Not a dry eye in the car.



I love you Jimmy. Rest well and we will see you again.



Your big sister "Heimer"
By: Gerald McCluskey Dec 4, 2005
Remembering the time Jim and I were in town and the parking meter ran out. Jimmie went begging for pennies to refill the meter so we wouldn't get in trouble by the police.



We walked from town during the night in twenty-below-zero weather. Our parents thought Jim and I were at our aunt's house:Until we returned home quite awhile later, almost frozen to death.



Jimmie,Terry, and I always got in trouble playing on the elevator when we visited with our great aunt. We were just having fun!
By: Jerry(Judd) McCluskey Dec 1, 2005
I remember the time we walked from town at night,in windy-20 below zero weather, for about eight miles. thought our parents would worry because they thought we were going to our aunt's house;until Jimmy and I got back home almost frozen to death.

DAVID AND I HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING JIM AND TINA IN 1993 AT PINEY SHORES. IT WAS'NT LONG AT ALL BEFORE WE DEVELOPED A TRUE FRIENDSHIP THE IS STILL GOING STRONG TODAY. I CAN REMEMBER SO MANY GOOD TIMES THAT WE SHARED TOGETHER . I REMEMBER ALL THE LOVE AND ENERGY THAT JIM BROUGHT TO THE "PARTY". I REMEMBER HOW HE ALWAYS MADE TIME TO GIVE ME A HUG (AND KISS)( BOY DID HE HAVE GREAT LIPS)HE ALWAYS, AND I MEAN ALWAYS HAD A COMPLIMENT FOR ME. THERE ARE SO FEW PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD THAT YOU REALLY LIKE, AND EVEN FEWER THAT YOU WANT TO BE AROUND, BECAUSE PEOPLE IN GENERAL HAVE A TENDENCY TO BE NEGATIVE, WHICH IN OUR BUSINESS IS LETHAL, I CAN'T REMEMBER A SINGLE TIME THAT JIM WAS EVER NEGATIVE,EVEN ALL THE TIMES TINA WOULD TELL ME THAT JIM DID'NT FEEL WELL, HE WOULD COME IN TO PICK TINA UP FOR THEIR "PICNIC'S" AND HE ALWAYS LOOKED AND ACTED LIKE HE FELT LIKE A MILLION BUCKS. I WOULD COMMENT TO TINA AFTER JIM DROPPED HER BACK OFF, HOW GOOD HE LOOKED. HALF THE TIME I THOUGHT SHE WAS LYING TO ME !!!! THAT'S HOW POSITIVE A PERSON JIM WAS,EVEN THOUGH HE DEFINETLY HAD REASON TO BE NEGATIVE , HE WAS'NT. GOD HOW WE WISH HE WAS STILL WITH US !!!! THE ONLY CONSOLATION WE HAVE IS THAT WE WERE BLESSED TO HAVE KNOWN HIM AT ALL !!! TINA AND I HAVE TALKED ABOUT IT AND WE KNOW THAT HE IS UP THERE IN HEAVEN SINGING TO JESUS, AND PLAYING GOLF WITH SAINT PETER AND PAYNE STEWART, AND HE IS SO VERY HAPPY, HIS ONLY REGRET IS LEAVING TINA AND DANDY AND TOMMY AND HIS BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND RELATIVES AND FRIENDS ALL BEHIND.....WELL GOD WILLIN AND THE CREEK DON'T RISE WE WILL SEE YOU AGAIN SOMEDAY. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS,TERESA BOIES
By: Sheri Conner Nov 28, 2005
I remember Jim for always having a smile on his face. No matter the circumstance or how bad he was feeling, he was always cheery and wanting to know how I was doing. I also remember how great hew always smelled!! I have never meet anyone that has a single bad thing to day about Jim. The world is a better place by having Jim in it and he will be sorely missed.

Tina,



You are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of sorrow. Dad was such a wonderful man! I loved it when I got to see him and get those good hugs! Dad will be greatly missed by all. I was definately blessed by god when he brought you and Dad into my life. Dad will never be forgotten by anyone, especially me. If there is anything you ever need please do not hesitate to give me a call.



Love,

Amy

Mom,

You know how much I love you and Dad. I am very sorry for not only your loss but the rest of the worlds loss, it was such a better and happier place with dad in it. At least we still have you. Every thing that I said at dads memorial was true. I sincerly believe that by knowing dad I was able to learn how god intended for us to live our lives and I only hope that I can be half the man dad was. I didnt know him as long a lot of other people but I did know him long enough to have my life changed by him and to consider him family, dont worry I feel the same about you. Well I dont want to take up too much room but just know that I always have and always will love you and dad. If there is anything that I can for you Im only a mile away so dont hesitate to call, dont forget that. I love you and my prayers are with you!!!!

Mom

My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family for the loss of someone so dear to you. For the short period that i met Dad there are a couple of things about him that i will never forget. He always wears a cap whenever i see him and i also admired everytime he comes to Piney Shores on your lunch break the two of you would drive down to the lake in his Ford truck and have lunch together. Thankyou for giving us something to always remember dad with. We will continue to pray for you.

Love always

REMIE

Tina,

I have missed you and now I know why. I was so sorry to hear of "Dad's" passing.

Please know that Pistol and I will keep you in out fervent prayers. I know also

that you have watched Dad going downhill for some time now.

I remember one night you wrote that you and Dad had shared a simple dance together,

oh how my heart strings were pulling...I too love to share a dance with my Pistol.

We never know when it will be our last dance do we?

I Love you Tina, and if I can do anything for you ... PLEASE let me know.

I meet dad on the phone when he was making a sale pitch, and we started talking, and found out that he was the wife to a super good friend of our. He told me how they were looking a puppy that was diffenent, I told him we had a little one that was black and tan dapple with 1 blue eye, he got excited about it and I brought the baby to him and Tina to show off and Tina fell in love with her, they name her Dandy. Dandy has been a great companion to him and kept him company while Tina was working. It was so funny when Jim would get ready to somewhere he would get her dressed with a pretty necklace and a pretty scarf around her neck and also help secure the yard before they go any where. I wish I can add a picture to this it would be very special with this. He always told us how much he loved us and we love both Dad and Mom and they would call us the Grand parents like Grandma and Grandpa, David, Dee Dee and I will always have him our hearts and we will miss him very much.
By: Ann Wheeler Nov 25, 2005
In addition, when Jim and Tina would take vacation for 2 days or longer we would baby sit Dandy, Dandy will get upset. When Jim would come get her or when we bring her home she would get excited to see them. Dandy would love to go places like Mc Donalds or Jack and Box for a Breakfast Sandwich, and love to go the beach and go walking. All you have to do is take the your car keys out and say let go or have her clothes ready.
By: JOHN PHINNEY Nov 24, 2005
Where to start? Well,I should start by saying that i met DAD in or around 1972 or 73? I was 10 or 11 years old.My parents were in the land sales industry for 30 years.I have also been in the business for 25 years and met DAD at holly lake ranch in early 70's.from there myself and or someone in my family always stayed in touch with JIM and TINA. I worked with them in so many places around the country it will be hard to remember all of them.To name a few,Red River Ranch,OKLAHOMA,Many LA,PINEY SHORES,conroe,which i had a great deal to do with bringing them there which they stayed for years.A land development in Corsicana TX, in the late 80's which my entire family and mom and dad were like one big family and had some of the best times of our lives.Thinking of DAD.WOW..... One of the funniest people i have ever met in all my 43 years in this world.DAD and i shared a very close relationship.I lived with mom and dad and for people really loved there privacy opened there home for me when i really needed a home. They showed me how giving and loving they are. They wanted me to stay as long as i wanted,I think i still have a room with my name on it ? One thing about DAD was he always wanted to know if i prayed and talked to our lord and that JESUS loves me and needed to be saved so we could meet again. In fact we were going to start bible study one night a week and i was going to go with him every week.I could talk about DAD for days.. I want to end by saying i know i have dad in heaven on my side looking out for all that loved him and all that he loved.Thanks DAD for making my life a better one.I LOVE YOU JIM DAD MCLUSKEY!!!!!YOUR GOOD SON FOREVER...also i want to thank Eric for doing a great job helping mom and with all the courage it took to lead the eulogy's ,SUPER proud of you guy, with much love, JOHN PHINNEY LOVE YOU mom and dad.......
By: Marylin Groves Nov 24, 2005
I will always remember the love and joy that "Dad" spread everywhere he went. I am saddened that I lost touch as we all do in this idustry, but glad that Dad brought so many of us together to see him off. To also have the opportunity to meet his real family. I loved Dad and his forever smile. So many wonderful things have been said about Dad that I won't list all his wonderfulness it can't be done. I love you Jim McCluskey and you will always be in my heart and soul. The things you and Mom taught me in life, love, and business will always follow in me and in my daughter's life. You are the best. The following is a poem that I came across when I lost my uncle and I would to share it with Jim's family and especially my very special lady, Tina McClusky, my second Mom.

God saw you getting tired,

and a cure was not to be.

So He put His arms around you,

and whispered,"Come to me".

With tearful eyes we watched you,

and saw you pass away.

And though we loved you dearly,

we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

with gentle hands at rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us,

He only takes the best.



Tina you are in my heart and my prayers today, and everyday.

Dad was one of those unforgettable people. I met Mom and Dad 13 years ago when I started

dating John Phinney. I always felt welcome in his presence! He had such a good demeanor

about him. Dad had such a love for people. You didn't have to wonder if he was a christian.

You could see th love he had for Jesus shining through him! He smiled as much as you can

smile,laughed as much as you can laugh and loved as much as you can love. I have so many

wonderful memories to cherish from knowing him. One day I will see you again with that smile

across your face and hear that laugh I remember so well. I know you are waiting for all of

us to get there with you in God's time. In the meantime you were the example everyone needs

to reflect on for making a difference in this world. Love Always, Tara
By: Michelle Risor Nov 23, 2005
Just like it has been said time and time again..Dad is a special person. There was not a time that I can ever remember seeing Dad and not getting my hugs... There is not at time when we spoke that he did not ask how I was...There was never a time that I can remember that he did not say "I love you". Dad was such a loving man. We are all so very lucky to have known him and loved him. He has touched so many lives. Dad will never be forgotten, that I can promise.

Jimmy was my best friend for many years. We enjoyed hundreds of adventures while he lived in New Mexico. Money was sometimes a little scarce,however, we found ways to entertain ourselves as well as others in a small community in the NM mountains known as Timberon. We thought at the time that these were hard times, yet they turned into our fondest memories. As you know Jim was a very good singer. I played a little guitar, so we became the live music in the town on Saturday night. The old bar was located in a basement, so the accoustics were not too good and more than a little lowd. It seemed to be the exact medicine for this small group of wonderful people. We played & sang, and they drank a little & danced away their troubles for just a little while. Please believe me when I say, we were the best of friends. I will always miss JIm, and I will always love him

Sincerely, and with great sorrow,

Ben

Tina,

I was so saddened to hear of Jim's passing. What a wonderful, kind, sweet and loving man he was. I have such fond memories of both you and Jim. I remember one night in particular when Don and I went out with you and Jim and he got up and sang....do you remember? That was a special night. Then, of course, I am sure all of us remember how good he always smelled. Teresa helped me pick out a hat today that still had his scent. How

blessed the two of you were to have each other for all those years. If ever two people were meant to be together it was the two of you and I am so glad to have had the pleasure of knowing you both. God bless you Tina and know you are in my prayers.

By: Patty Phinney-Macauley Nov 22, 2005
I have know Jim (Dad) for 3o years. I first met him as a young girl of sixteen. He was a salesman at Holly Lake. A very handsome man and kind man. Holly Lake at that time was like being at the top selling timeshare

resort in the world. The best of the best in Land saleman were there. Everything was going on. non stop action and drama. You name it and it happen. There must of been at least a hundred men on the line. None

was interested in spending any time with kids of other salesman. EXCEPT for Jim. His home was always open for

me and all kids. Most salesmen didn't want kids around and no one wanted the phinney kids around because we were like we are now, not normal and out of control.

But Jim welcome us and looked after us. Never did he send us home and always was happy to see us. My point is

that even back then before most of you knew him he was special. He stood out then and he stands out now. He was a loving soul and had nothing but kindness and love in his soul for everyone he met young or old. Never have I seen a man love a woman as I have seen Jim love Tina. His love was unconditionaly, as is hers. I regret I didn't spend more time with Tina and Jim. I regret not being at the hospital. I most of all regret not being able to speak to him before he passed on and not being there for Tina. For all this I am sorry. For this I am ashamed. I hope that Tina and Jim will in time forgive me. What I considered Important,is no longer that Important. Let me try to explain. A business, being sucessful, and money is never going to make anyone happy. You think it will but it won't. All will find that what really matters most, is being with and around folks like Jim(Dad). They are far and few and all that knew him were better for it as am I. With all my Love Patty

Although I did not know Jim well I always considered him a good friend and neighbor

Whenever our paths crossed he was always with a smile and kind words

Even at this sad time... I feel pleased in the fact that I did know him

I have great memories of my Uncle Jim, and although I hadn’t personally seen him for many years, the impression he left on me as a young boy was very powerful and influential. He was a special man and of course, very cool��.�.



God speed� Rest well my friend�
By: Corey Gravelle Nov 21, 2005
I would like to offer my condolenses and deepest sympathy to Jim's wife, dauther, brothers and sisters during this difficult time. While I only had the pleasure of meeting Uncle Jim on a few occasions, I have fond memories of his love for music and devotion to his family and country. My mother always spoke warmly of her older brother.



Peace be still and go with God. Semper Fi.
By: Cliff Pumphrey Nov 21, 2005
"Dad" was a special man. He always had a good word to say to whomever he might meet. I met him coming in the gate at Piney, sometimes if time permitted, we would chat a bit. We shared some of the same problems, health-wise and we would discuss our respective aches and pains. Whenever I would ask him how he was doing he would always tell me "Fine, I'm doing good!" Then I would say "Now that we've got the lying out of the way, how are you REALLY doing?" and he would tell me the truth. I did the same.

I'll always remember him in his big white truck or maybe that Mustang as he would come in. It was always a pleasure to pass a few minutes with him and I had the utmost respect for him.

My condolences go out to the family left behind but I know that he left a legacy that will stand for a long, long time. "Dad" won't soon be forgotten by those who knew and loved him.

Rest in Peace, Dad.
