My deepest sympathy on the news of Jim's passing.  Some of my best memories of Jim were of him laughing with that warm smile and witty sarcasm. Jim loved his family dearly and always was excited to share with me what was going on with his grandchildren. Going to get a haircut with Nikki,  Patrick's delicious pepperoni rolls, Kelsey's free spirit, Alex the "runner", and Janet and Betsy who he was always excited to hear when they were coming to Florida. Unforgettable family bond calling every morning and night. You truly have an amazing family that Jim was so proud to share. Jim will be dearly missed and definitely one of those people I will never forget.

I sit here with tears in my eyes as I think of the many hours talking and laughing with Jim when he so diligently supported Patrick in baseball. They were such good buddies.
It was a pleasure to know him, and my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
