When I came to Nashville in 1983, Margie Barton introduced Jim to me and we became fast friends. We lived down the hall from each other at Close Quarters. We hung out everyday, went to parties, sat around and sang together, and just a lot of living. Jim was easily my best friend and almost like an older brother. His ready wit and amazing laugh was enough to lift spirits and send them soaring. Jim was unpretentious and charming - honest and sincere. We talked a lot about music. Along with other friends like Marcia Beverly, we seem to be living in a fun, storybook world with music at the center. We were all searching for something and the camaraderie of our little group, with Jim as the ringleader, made awesome memories of those days. I have always been very saddened that we lost touch and have tried several times over the last years to reach him through management and other channels. Now, after all these years, I feel a deep and abiding sense of loss - yet, I will always treasure those memories and the knowledge that we were really great friends and really supported each other in some difficult times. I remember laughing until we cried and listening to some songs over and over and over. I can picture those spring afternoons sitting outside Close Quarters with friends and Jim's smile as big and bright as the afternoon sun with that glint of mischief in his eyes. There was a lark coming and you just had to brace for it. What a grand time! What a great friend. Jon, you and I only knew each other slightly in passing, but your brother was to me like my own. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers and remember Jim in my music. As I, too have a career of singing with my brothers and other family, the connection is one I feel strongly. Next performance, I'll dedicate a song to him and to you. May God bless and keep you.
