We haven't seen Jim in a long time, but had 12 years of being a close neighbor during our time in Munroe Falls. We had many good times. Our prayers to Sandy and family.

I am sadden by the loss of Jim. I just talked to him recently about his sister Kathy's passing and looked forward to reconnecting on my next visit to the Akron area. Jim and I were close growing up and drifted apart as we grew older. Jim had a challenging childhood but was toughened by that challenge. He was a good friend and will be missed.
