Debbie, My heart aches for you. You've been through so much already. I am keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Let me hoist a cyber-glass here to the memory of "Possum"! As usual, I'm about six months behind "the curve", only recently hearing about his passing from "Weav" here in Vegas. Nonetheless, I am saddened by his passing - I wish that I had a tenth of his courage. I can say that he and I were party to some of the big moments at the ol' DCPP, and that he was an island of intelligence and calm in what all too often turned into a whirlpool of frantic idiocy.

"Helmdawg", "Abdul", and Randy are all present on this page and will all assuredly agree with me.

To "Mrs. Possum" and all of the young "Possums", it was an honor to know your husband and dad; I can say without reservation that he was totally devoted to you.

Finally...Possum, if you somehow get this, and made it past St. Pete at the ol' "Pearly Gates", stick something in the latch - otherwise I'll have to break in!

May we meet again.

To my friend "Sunshine." I will miss terribly. I met Jim in college. He was one of the nicest person I have ever met. My prayers are with his family and may your memories help you with your loss.

Dear Mrs. Fauria and the Fauria Family:

I was very saddened to learn today of Jim's passing. We grew up together in San Leandro and were classmates at Assumption School.

Please accept my condolences and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Debbie, Kaitlin, Matthew & Jessica,

We are all so sorry to hear about the loss of your great husband and wonderful Dad. I know you all had a wonderful life together and that you all miss him terribly. We enjoyed the time we shared with you in San Luis Obispo and are thinking of you all during this most difficult time. Love, Lori, Steve, Braeden and Karsten Hall

First of all, I was sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Jim was a good friend, a good companion and good workmate. He was always cheerful, always proactive and his presence was welcome for everything he turned up for.

I enjoyed jim's company and was pleased when he went to Las Vegas with me for the Turtles concert. He was not in the best of shape, but he never complained and was up for a walk around new York, New York or the Luxor or just about anywhere we went. He didn't make a big deal about the pain he was in, or allow that pain from stopping him from dioing what he wanted to do.

I imagine that Jim was like that all his life, that he did what had to be done, did what he wanted to do, and did what he could to please you and his children and didn't let the restrictions of bad health or pain or a flagging body stop him.

I met Jim two years ago, we collaborated on a project together, a project that started out as a simple request that management thought would take a week or two to fix. But the scope inexorably increased to the point where it was unmanageable. Jim took it in stride, we projected about a man-year of work to do the job that our manager casually tossed our way. I was not happy telling our bosses that the project was so much bigger than they had originally projected, but Jim was willing to go in with me and share the load. He didn't have to, but he did.

And one of my memories of Jim is one that is poignant for me. Your son came to a party at Carol's house with Jim, they were sitting together and your son had hold of Jim's shirt, was gripping it with his fingers, and Jim had his arm around his shoulders. Both of them were talking to someone else, but it was obvious they were close. The image spoke to me, good father, it said. I was pleased tht Jim had a close relationship with his son. I didn't see Jim around his daughters much never saw that unconscious affection but I am sure it was there, just from the way Jim talked about them, the affection he had and the pride he felt talking about them all.

It is a shame that Jim has gone to his reward, if I can use that old fashioned term, but I believe that he made good use of his time here and left a lot of people better off for having known him. Jim was well liked at work, several of the in house guys came up to me and Carol and John Redler and told us that they were shocked by the news and that they were saddened by his passing. Jim had a lot of friends and well wishers here. He will be missed.

Jim will always be in our thoughts and memories. We had such great adventures with Jim back in college. He grounded us and kept us focused. Jim will always be with us.

Jim was the picture perfect family man. His dedication to his family is an inspiration to me.

It was a pleasure to have Jim as a co-worker at Diablo. His friendly attitude and work ethic were greatly appreciated. He dealt bravely with the challenges that life presented him with, and I am sure that his family is proud of him.

Jim is amongst the best ever to have worked at Diablo. Jim was an exceptional team player and friend. Co-workers at Diablo have been missing our friend Jim for a few years now. Many condolences to Jim's family.
