I had the privilege to co-author the textbook, Adjustment and Growth in a Changing World with Jim. He, Vince Napoli, the other co-author, and I would often meet for lunch at a Chinese restaurant in Kendall to discuss our writing over an eighteen year period. It also was a honor to teach with him at Miami Dade College for 31 years. He was very enthusiastic about his subject matter. He was always a supporting friend. My last email from him was on Sept 13th. I will miss him.
