Jim was such a fine person. I knew him from Kindergarten (Miss Lorraine) through HS. He was my neighbor, two doors down. One of the N. Spring St. super gang. Even when boys developed "cooties" in 2nd grade and we girls had to vaccinate ourselves with pencils, he was "cootie" free, kind, and gentle. The world has lost a great guy, but we must believe that he is still available to listen, AND if we are very quiet we will hear his answers.
