To our Humidour Family,
It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart that I write to let you know that “The One and Only Daddy Jim” passed away last night at home surrounded by family.
I woke up this morning thinking this is a nightmare, and he is really not gone. I have been preparing myself for a long time, and I thought I would be ready, but I am not. My heart is broken.
I know how blessed I was to have a father like you. And I hope you know the incredible role you played in my life every single day! You were there through good times, bad times, and everything in between. You were my superhero, the strongest man in the world! Best of all, you taught me and all of your children to stand on our own. We know you will continue to be the angel watching over us.
I was beyond blessed to be your business partner for 25 years. I always say the two of us could have written a book about our adventures at the cigar shoppe. We celebrated big milestones. We had each other’s backs when we messed up. We pushed every angle we could to make our small business a success. But most importantly, we created a second home for our family and for our customers. I know they will be there for me and the family now to help us get through this difficult time. I promise I will continue to grow our small business for you. I will get to look at you every morning and smile as I walk into the Zorba Lounge.
I know you are in a better place, and you will continue to watch over all of us, but I will miss you terribly Dad!
Your daughter, business partner, and biggest fan
We all share the family’s grief at the loss of this wonderful man. The viewing will be on Tuesday, November 1st, and the funeral will be on Wednesday, November 2nd. The shoppe and lounges will be closed on Wednesday, November 2nd for the funeral.
