I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Always remember getting to know Jim on the many Chetek school bus routes that we shared. We had some great conversations! Always enjoyed reconnecting with him at the Class Reunions that were shared because of my late husband Tom.
RIP Dear Jim.

I am so very sorry to hear of Jim's passing. We had so many wonderful times with both of you on Badger football trips. It was because of Jim that Jay started liking Margharita's - he hasn't found one he has liked as much as in Texas. And hosting my kids at your home....thank you, thank you, thank you. Gail, if there is anything I can do for you here in Wisconsin, please let me know. My thoughts and prayers are with you!!!! Sheri
