I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Please except my most sincere condolences. I worked with him way back at the Athol Table Shop. He was always a great guy. He and Mac were both a pleasure to work with.

Hi Terry,

I'm sorry to hear of Jim's passing.

Always looked forward to seeing him and you on pool nights. Always a smile on his face.

I got a kick out of him telling all of us how we went to school together, even though I was a few years behind him. Had a lot of fun with you both.

Many fond memories!
