Saying goodbye is never easy. Little Jim was such a big part of my youth. I looked up to both him and Katie. My heart hurts knowing he is no longer with us. Sending love to his family. May his memories stay with us always. He is a great man!

My sincere condolences to the Seeling family. I worked with Jim @ IAC for a few years. We sat right next to each other. Talked everyday. It was always a pleasure to converse with him. I can assure you he was very proud and spoke highly of his family. He was a very dedicated worker and in the world of Program Management, Jim was the best Program Manager I ever witnessed and learned from. He helped always.

RIP Big Jim.

Sending my sympathies to Karen, Colin, Trevor and the entire family. Recent months have cost you all greatly and for that I am truly sorry. The day to day ups and downs put such a strain on you all and still Jim went home to be among the angels. I am sorry for your loss and grieving will be a process as you know from so recently losing Bob. It is said God won`t give you more than you can handle. I just wish it wasn`t all at once. You all will be in my thoughts and continuing prayers. I hope you find peace and things get better in each passing day. My love to you all.

I didn't know Jim, I may have met him twice. But I felt like I knew him and his family well through stories and antidotes from both Jim Sr and Gail. This was a life cut short much too soon! My heart goes out to the entire Seeling family. May God bless the family in their grief, and take Jim into his loving arms!

Jim and I worked together in the Chrysler Division of Lear and later in the Southfield offices. He was always a kind and considerate man and I'm fortunate to have known him. He will be dearly missed.

Our prayers go out for the family, that you may find comfort and peace.

Jim was a great coworker and friend. I will and remember the conversations we shared at Lear and discussions about coaching. Jim brought a football to give to my son, it's one of many lasting impressions. Prayers & Peace to Trevor, Colin, and Karen.
