Jim, We worked together for about 30 years! You were always dependable, trustworthy and kind, a go to person for help who would meet me with a smile.Oh remember when we had our group picture taken while standing next to an F-16? That was cool. Thank you for sharing and 'bragging' to let us coworkers know how proud you were of your family, and how you loved them. I won't say goodbye. Just like in 2012, in my mind, you are just down the hallway, helping someone. Peace be with you my friend. ~ Sheryl
