  7. I’m vey saddened to find out about Jim passing. I knew Jim for many years and he was such a friendly guy. He was always so nice and even though I knew that he had been fighting a battle for many years he never complained. My thoughts are with his son and daughter who I know were the main focus of his life. I’m so sorry for your loss.
