Dear Mike and family, Pete Graham joins me in sending our prayers during this sad time for you all. We did not know your dad, but losing a dad is always a very hard time. May the good memories buoy your spirits and the beauty of our part of the Cape be part of your healing. hugs, Maureen Cronin & Pete Graham

I am saddened to hear of James' death. In the 1970's when I was the funeral director in Provincetown, Jimmy and I worked with the Boy Scouts, forensic cases,belonged to the Provincetown Fish and Game club and we hunted deer together in North Truro. He was always a gentleman, and would do anything for anyone. His passing is a big loss to those who knew him.

Dear Pat, I am so sad for your loss. I found out that Jimmy had passed away, after we returned from visiting family over Christmas. Jimmy gave his life to serving the community and others. He truly cared and has a legacy of family and friends and an entire community who loved him. Ted enjoyed having him as a friend and colleague. Both these dynamic and caring men, now gone from us. My very deepest condolences to you and the Meads family. - Jan Meyer

My sincere condolences to Patricia, James Jr. and Michael and all the Meads family. Provincetown has lost an ICON. The Chief and I go back a long way. We played basketball for the Provincetown Ramblers starting in 1960 and our games were played in the top floor of town hall. Jimmy and I were very good friends all these years. I will miss you my friend RIP.

I was sad to hear of my uncles passing, my sympathies go to my cousins, his granddaughter and surviving wife. Sorry that I won't be able to be there, but it is cold up here and weather is not good this time of year for an 8 hour drive. He will be missed greatly but in my memories with good thoughts of being out at the beach so many years ago.

My sincere condolences to the Meads family and friends. I was fortunate to work in the Provincetown community for a few years. Being in the banking industry I got to work with Jimmy and developed a great respect for him in his ability to run the Provincetown Police Department. We also attended many community functions together. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.

To the Meads Family: My prayers and condolences to you during this time of sorrow. It was my honor to know and work with Chief Meads during my law enforcement years on the Cape back in the late 1960's and early 1970's. A true public servant, he was simply, the best. Win Farwell

My sincere condolences to the Meads family for your loss. I was fortunate to serve as a summer police officer under Chief Meads and developed a great respect for him in his ability to run a professional department in a town as complex as Provincetown. Michael, my thoughts are with you and your entire family and to let you know we are thinking of you.

Mike, Jimmy Joe and Family, So sorry for your loss. I had tremendous respect for your father and remeber as a boy having to stand in front of his desk a time or two. Later in life I would see him, usually when I was with Danny, and I realized he had a great sence of humor. Now I know where Mike gets it from. I remember playing with matchbox cars in your yard and when your Dad came home he reminded me of the Rifleman, Chuck Connors. Your Mom always had a Tab in her hand and your parents set an example of how parents should behave. I have fond memories of parties at the point and playing at each others houses. Again, sorry for your loss. In Prayer, Jon & Janice Sawyer

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jimmy's family and friends. Jimmy was married to my cousin Brenda and a good friend to my dad Tom Kane. He faithfully served the town of Provincetown and the Lower Cape Ambulance Society and will be missed by his many friends.
