I will keep Jim Wert in my memory and my heart as long as I live. Jim was a good friend and put me on the academic path by hiring me out of Lockheed Georgia to come to Vanderbilt University many many years ago. He and I and Jane lived and worked together at Vanderbilt for many years. He was always positive and willing to offer a helping hand. I will miss him.
