Gwen and Family, Jim had a profound influence on my life as a business man, leader, and person. He was the brightest person I ever worked with and his persona was that of a polished professional who always knew what to say and always said it with grace. Someone said that Jim Bond was so smooth, he made sandpaper feel like silk!! He was a mentor to me throughout my career, and someone I will always treasure and appreciate. Jim and I used to have lots of fun on the golf course and we both were big fans of the St.Louis Cardinals.
Jim will be sorely missed by all those who loved him and for all those he touched with his brilliance and undeniable charm.
