I was saddened to hear of Jim's passing. I served with Jim in the 5th Bn of the 60th Infantry 9th Infantry Division. I remember him as "Slip" and the story of how his uncle had given him that name.

Rest in Peace.

Im sorry to hear the passing of Jim... He has tought several of us to appreciate music from all time periods. Many of us met Jim via the VVA chapter 154. He will be missed and our prayers are with Jim's family and friends. Sue i am sorry for the loss and i know it has been several years but your family has been in my thoughts throughout.
