I send my condolences to Jim’s family! I worked with him as I am a pipe fitter and have nothing but fond memories and we had some good laughs too. I’m sure everyone who I work with will share the same sentiments. I’m glad to have worked alongside a man of his caliber!

I was very sad to read about Jim's passing in today's paper. I have often thought about him over the years and wondered how he was doing. I can see that he was very successful in having a large and living family. He was very fortunate for that alone. My name is Sally Dean nee Shave. I am not sure but I think Jim graduated with me from Mohonasen in 1967. I always remembered him as we were in many classes together and he was always above guy and polite to girls, a rarity in those days. We talked usually about cars and Amsterdam, he loved that place. If this is the one and same Jim Sweet I would ask that one of his siblings contact me, if that's possible. Just a text would be great as I am somewhat deaf as a result of my own service with the US Army. My number is 518-817-1840.

Since the 1st time meetiing him at a family party now...Jim always treated me like family! I was always inspired by how much he embraced and cherished his family. I'm going to miss our talks and that bullhorn laugh. Rest easy my friend.

Dear Ron, Betty, Joe, Brian and Stacey -

I was so saddened to hear the news of Jim's passing. I will always remember Jim for his kindness, smile and laid-back style of life, which was so refreshing. I regret not be able to pay my respects in person due to COVID-19. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. He is now together again with his beloved Sharon, Mary and Herb, and the rest of his family members. He will not be forgotten. Love, Laurie Schraver
