    Over the years working with Jim I got to know him as compassionate, caring person. We often talked more about topics of friendship, sports or our families than about work relate areas. His eyes would light up when he spoke of his children as he was a very proud father.

    I learned a great deal while both working with Jim and having him as a friend. You will be missed my friend
