In my prayers! Jim has been a great friend, I will miss him terribly. We were in the Horticulture class together, he so rotten like have your big brother around! Jim did his best to stay in touch with me after school and during his time in the Navy. We could go for years without talking. Then we would catch up with each other. Jennifer you know my heart goes out to you. Jim did his best as a friend when my husband recently passed! He had talked about the 3 of us meeting for dinner. I'm so sad that didn't happen.
