I worked for Jim eons ago as a Body Wiring Lab engineer. He taught me how to play cribbage and we would play during lunch. One day we had a bet, he lost, and had to buy me a package of Oreos!

Dear Karen, David, Allie and James and Josh, I’m so sorry about the loss of Uncle Jim. I remember how he and our Dad would rob each other and how their grins were so very similar. I know Dad enjoyed playing chess with Uncle Jim on the computer up until a few years ago, and how they relished beating each other at that! I like to think that now they can continue their chess games together. Sending my love and hugs to all.
