I worked with Jim for many, many years at DTA.. We would talk about our trips to our favorite places! Foxwoods, or a bingo either one of us had gone to. He loved his Chinese food, though I really think he went to check on his friends at lunch time, ( he got us all hooked on it).
We’d be out in the back of the office having a smoke before our next client. He was quite a guy, good guy. Rest In Peace my friend. 💕
