I got to know Jim 20 years ago when I was working in Baton Rouge and attended First Church. We were both often at Wednesday services and Sunday evening prayer. Outside of church, I used to wake up really early on Saturdays because I woke up so early all week for work. I would go down the McDonald's on Government, just down from the church, and I often ran into Jim. He always invited me to sit with him and I really enjoyed the time we got to spend together then.
