My deepest sympathy for your lost. In Memory of Jim I left a donation to ALS in Honor of Jim. Jim and I worked briefly together in maintenance at Costco in McKinney TX. My favorite thing about Jim was he always wore a smile and was always there to lend a helping hand. I looked forward to seeing what socks he was wearing. Jim will be missed but not forgotten. His memory will live on in our hearts.
