Jim was a good friend of mine. We met a few years ago while he was living in Lawrence. During his trips to and from his Drs. appointments, we shared many stories. I last visited Jim in February. He was still the same ole Jim, newer lost for something to say. Jim will be long remembered for his good heartedness, and thoughtfulness.
