I am so sorry to hear of Jim´s passing. He was a fine man, whom I always looked up to. My parents who live in Merrillville, Joy and Ken, just thought the world of him. I spent many days as a five year old watching him work. I always have thought of him my mentor. God bless you, and may Jim Rest In Peace.
