We are so sorry for you loss. We were honored to have Father Jim officiate at our wedding. He will be remembered for his eloquent and inspirational words.

Jim was a gentle giant, intellectually speaking, and a loyal friend who was always willing to be of service when he otherwise might have skipped the opportunity. He typified the humility which best characterized an ordained minister of the Gospel. Requiescat in pace.

Father Flanagan was our Pastor at Holy Family for many years. He will be missed. He was such a gentle soul.

Rest in peace, Fr Flanagan.

I enjoyed attending Fr Flanagan's devout and enlightening Masses at Immaculate Conception Church.

I come from a very large family who were parishioners of Holy Family Church in the Bronx for several generations and we still continue to have a very close relationship with the parish even though we no longer reside there. During the many years that Father Flanagan was the Pastor of Holy Family we were so blessed and fortunate to get to know him very well; and benefit from his great faith, love and guidance. Our family will never forget Father Flanagan and what he did for us and for all parishioners of Holy Family.
