I worked closely with Jim's daughter Jenny in late 2000s. Both Jim and I were experiencing heart issues. Jenny always made sure Jim was doing healthy things, and if they were successful, she made sure I knew it, too. When Ikhem had his walk, that was the only time I ever got to meet Jim face-to-face. We joked like old friends, as our common bond was trying to do health things because of Jenny's instruction. May you rest in peace. You left so many blessing here on earth.

Remembering Jim and his family not only as a classmate of BHS 1965 but also as a fellow parishioner at Immaculate Conception for many years. Thinking of the family and offering prayers at this difficult time.
