I was very sorry to read of Jim's death. I had my first visit to his office about 3 1/2 years ago, Jim and Edith made me feel at ease and at home, and that feeling continued through the years.

Condolences to Jim's family especially his wife. I have known Jim since grade school and held him in high esteem. I most remember his smile which sometimes came out at the worst of times. In grade school he was known to his friends as "froggy" because of his deep voice. He was a great friend and will be missed by all who knew him.
