Words cannot express how much Jim loved and was loved. Thank you for everything - WWF wrestling and D&D, Star Wars and comic books, writing kooky adventures together, and so much more. You will never be forgotten.

It was a privledge to know you...

Thank you Jim for introducing me to D&D! When my son started playing I often told him stories about the campaigns you ran and how much I missed playing. Even more, I enjoyed the conversations while working at TRU.

In the past couple years I was grateful to re-connect through FB and share some in-depth conversations about many different subjects. I wish there could be more....

I look forward to the day that I believe we will speak again. I pray to God that your family and friends will find comfort in knowing that you are reunited with your parents and resting in a place where there is no sadness but perfect joy.
