Thank you for the days
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me
I'm thinking of the days
I won't forget a single day, believe me
I bless the light
I bless the light that lights on you, believe me
And though you're gone
You're with me every single day, believe me

Jim has been a big part of my life since I was twelve years old. Him, Karen, Zak and Jeremy helped shape me in to the person I am today. I am forever grateful to have had the opportunity to know him and beyond thankful for all of the lessons, morals, and humor Jim has shared with me along the way.

For well over 50 years Jim and I shared a deep and rich friendship. We shared a passion for music, art and the world of ideas. Separated only by distance in later life, I came to see the powerful love and care he held for his wife, sons and grandchildren. Although I have deep sadness for the loss of my dear friend, I feel so fortunate to have known Jim and for all that we shared. Peace and strength to all his loving family.

CandleHe will be deeply missed. His family always came first. Was always there to celebrate your accomplishments in life no matter how small you felt they were. I will miss our great sports talks and texts. As well as being able to share our views on any matter.
