I'm so sorry to hear about the death of my old friend, Jim McMullin. I first met Jim in 1963 when I was playing basketball at my court in Glenview Park, Warminster, Pennsylvania. Jim had just moved into the neighborhood and, of course, had a great love for the game. Before long, we played every night in the summer, either at my court or at the Fitzpatrick's. There was a group of regulars who were always there--- Jim McMullin, Jimmy Ricciardi, the Clark brothers, the Fitzpatrick brothers. We'd be joined intermittently by the Hartman brothers, Richie Redick, Jim Abbott, and later on the O'Donnels. We never knew who would join in, but there was always our crowd augmented by neighbors and friends. The games were spirited and friendly and played with a lot of emotion. I was never quite as athletically gifted as the rest, but Jim always picked me for his team. He got me the ball when I was open for the shot. That's the kind of guy Jim was. I remember Jim was really quick around the basket and a ferocious rebounder. If memory serves me correctly, he was Archbishop Wood's first basketball captain and first really good player.

Jim was very proficient at math, and he made time to assist me with my algebra homework.

When my father secured a position in Erie, Pennsylvania, we moved to that part of the state. One day I got a call from Jim, and he informed me that he and Eddie Fitzpatrick were going to make a 450 mile trek to Erie, Pennsylvania. He drove all that distance to come visit.

As life has it, we go to college, get married, have children, in-laws---what have you. Years go by and we lose touch. But I fondly remember those days in Warminster when I met my first and real true friends; and I am proud to say Jim was one of them. He always looked out for the kid who wasn't as tough or athletic as the rest.

Jim will be sorely missed by all those he came in contact with. We learned one thing from Jim's passing---there must be basketball in Heaven, or Jim would not have made the trip. Our deepest sympathies to Cynthia and Jim's children, grandchild and his many friends. May he rest in peace. The world will be a lesser place without him.
