Gail, Elizabeth, John,

Not a day, or really, an hour, goes by where I don't think of each of you. I am praying for you and praying for each of us here in America.

I am a security analyst who covers Netegrity, and I had no better friend in business than Jim.

Whenever I had a financial question, I would call Jim. He always knew the answer and would take time to carefully explain it to me.

As I matured as an analyst, so did my appreciation for Jim. He was never too busy to talk, never too full of himself to not listen, and never, ever condescending.

When I think of a guiding hand on the rudder of a ship in very stormy seas, I think of Jim.

When I need an example of kindness, I think of Jim.

Whenever I arrive at the precipice of thinking of people as something other than vulnerable human beings, I think: Jim. He never lost perspective, why should I?

It is hard for me to put into words the gratitude I felt for having known him. Jim was more than a friend to me, he was a living example of what is meant to never lose touch with what's important in life.

I miss him. And I think of each of you a lot.

I will never, ever forget Jim Hayden as long as I live.
Thank you for sharing him with me.
