Jim once told me while sitting at the kitchen table while talking about cars, racing and just life in general, he said to me “ Find something you love doing, and never give that up. “ ...that has stuck with me for the last 10 years.
A piece of who I am today...is because of Jim.
I am forever grateful to have known such a great person in life.
