Dear Diane...It's been many years since I've seen or heard from Jim. I was very saddened to hear of his sudden passing. We were great friends once. I think it was me that introduced you both. On a happier note, I'm so glad to know that you've had all these years together and twins and son to boot! He will live on through you, through them and through our loving memories. I would very much like to hear from you if you feel so inclined. Your all in my heart and prayers! Jim

I have been thinking of you a lot and will truly miss you my friend. Jim coined the phrase "flub a dub" to describe my missed shots. He made fun while being encouraging at the same time, always telling me I should be better. My numbers are coming down buddy, wish you were here to see it. The thing I liked most about Jim is that he turned from the Blue to the Green! Rest In Peace fellow Spartan fan!

Rest In Peace my friend and golf buddy. I will always remember singing with Jim and the others well into the wee hours at the Boxwood block party. Also early morning golf outings on New Year Day many times. I will miss you my friend.
