I know that Jim already greatly missed by your family. Along with those of us who knew and worked with Jim at the Guard. Way back in 1979 on a Guard deployment to England,Jim another Guard member and I took a long weekend trip to Scotland. We took a train thru Edinburgh and ended up in Inverness. A couple nights at B&Bs and a rental car trip around the Loch Ness. Gorgeous country,old castles and no Nessie sighted. Great weekend,Great company. RIP Jim
