Jim, You were always a great guy to me. We were pretty close in Grade School, and you always had a bright smile and a friendly word. I will miss you.

Jim was a very dear friend dating from our service together in the US Navy's Helicopter Support Squadron (HC-7) homebased at NAS Atsugi, Japan in the '60's. Our very close friendship continued at his next duty station, NAS South Weymouth, Mass. There he met my parents & brothers & continued a loving relationship with all of my family. Jim & I continued our friendship when I married & moved to Michigan. He has always been close to our lives & our hearts!! A fabulous, caring person will be deeply missed by all of our family, especially me. God bless you, Jim! Lots of Love, Pat & Kathy Knight & all of our family.

Dear Jim, we met some years ago, but got to know each other slowly. The more I learned about you, the better I liked you. I feel so sad that you are not going to be there, at PFLAG or the DTMC concerts, or anywhere else I'd bump into you, where you were always busy helping others. You are missed already.
