    I will always remember his smile, friendliness, and accepting spirit. I will miss sharing laughter and dancing with him. I am fortunate to have had him as a friend. One of my funniest memory of him is when he went on my boat wearing socks! I gave him grief for that . I will miss him.

    I have known this guy since we were 17 years old. Wonder friend, buddy, confidant. A hard working, honest, full of life, good man. Rest in peace. I already miss you. And in shock that you are gone.

    It was a real pleasure to have known Jim. His smile always lit up the room. I am so glad that we got to talk to him at a gathering of our social group just a few days before he went to the Hospital. We will miss that smile.

    Just two weeks ago we were enjoying lunch with Jim at m.i., where we worked together in several projects. He was always so polite and cheerful, his presence uplifting us just with his smile and kind words! He will stay in our memories, and whenever we sit at that same table he liked, we will certainly feel his presence. Let me extend to his family my heartfelt condolences.
