I have many fond rememberances of the years I worked with Jim as his assistant between 1969 and 1981, but also as a friend after that 'till just a few years ago. He was so generous, kind and friendly to just about anyone he met. I'll never forget his jovial manner in the office. His favorite greeting to me was "Davy me boy" is his pirate like accent. I loved spending time with Jim as we travelled around the State attending numerous meetings! Jim was a good mentor and friend.
