Not sure what to say?

Today, Mar 9, 2012 I received notice of Jim's answering the call of the supreme commander. Jim and I were DeVilbiss HS classmates as well as Toledo Post Island's teen gang in the 1930's. Jim was a Past Commander of Toldo Post AL 335 and we both were sponsored for membership in 1945 by our fathers. Jim chose the US Navy, I
enlisted in the US Army and became a career soldier. Jim was always a serious and very likeable fellow. TAPS are sounding every day for the WWII guys and gals....

I worked for Mr Gilbert at Gilbert Mail Service from May 1991 until June 2010. Rest in Peace, I'm sorry for the loss to his family and friends.

I worked for Jim at Gilbert Mail Service (I remember working there when the Blizzard of '78 struck). Jim was a gentlemen and consummate professional. Rest in peace, Jim. You've earned it, sir.

Good bye olad friend.
