We had some great Summers Jim at my Grandmothers in Berea. I think we walked all to town an back and even bought some matching hats!
I enjoyed your company even when just on email.  You will be missed.

Sorry to hear of Jim's passing.  He and I were good friends when he went to school in Oneida.  I only saw him a few times in later years (usually at Walmart), but he always knew me immediately.
