Oh Lord!... where to begin? Cindy and I were in Topeka back in October, and we made our always pilgrimage out to see him. We had not had any word of his condition, and we were shocked. But Jim and Connie were as gracious as ever, and we had a wonderful visit. I knew then that that would be my last visit with him, and I have been filled with nostalgia ever since, remembering so many hours spent with him. Jean was my High School Art teacher, and got me started, but Jim took me a thousand miles further down that road. I cannot possibly overstate the influence he had on my life. He was absolutely my most significant mentor, and it is so uplifting to know that he was a mentor to so many others too.

He was the greatest artist that I personally ever knew, a giant in bronze-cast sculpture. But of course he was brilliant in silk-screen, and other media as well. I dearly hope that Kansas will have some sense now of what they have lost. It always pained me to know that he never got the national or international acclaim that he so richly deserved.

So, Jaminda and Joren, who I have not seen since we finished building your landmark house so long ago, you have my deepest sympathies for what you have lost, and my most heartfelt appreciation for sharing your father with me, and the rest of the world, for awhile.

My condolence to Jim's family. I am Doris Bosworth Morris, My mother Elsie and Minnie were sisters, so Jim was my cousin. I visited him several times on the home place. He gave me a tour of the foundry and history of our family on Minnie's side. I liked Jim, he was friendly and very smart. He was very energetic and a hard worker.

Jim Bass was a great mentor. I worked for many years with him in the Scouting program. I also learned much from our association which dealt with what it means to be a good person.
He will be missed.
My condolences to his family.
