    I was very sadden to learn that Jimmy had died. I had attended High School with him. I always felt he was a friend. My thoughts are with your family. Through the years I would always ask other classmates what they knew of him. Again, sorry for your loss. Chuck Hayes Class of '64.

    Carol, Jeff, Kristen, Beth and families, I am so very thankful to have had many years of memories with, my cousin, Jim while growing up in Ohio. His sense of humor was the best, but he was also kind, intelligent and a lot of fun. It is a huge loss to have such a wonderful man leave this earth so soon. There will certainly be a void left in the lives of which he touched. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May you all find peace with his passing and comfort knowing his spirit will be with you forever. Love, Nancy & Mark
