Mary and Family, Steph and I want to add to the outpouring of sympathy. It certainly shows how well liked and respected Jim was in his community of friends and family. We always looked forward to chatting up with him at the many Bay City gatherings we were able to attend. I first was introduced to him back in 64 when he hosted a boss party at the family home w/ a real band "Ferry cross the Mercy" and all the cola we could drink. He was so great to include a bunch of freshman Lutheran boys. Jim would come out with a new, snazzy madras sport-coat every hour. Wow - that was how entertaining was supposed to be done.
