My heart goes out to Sue and the family. I worked with Jim at Howmet. A great guy. I knew him quite awhile before I found out he was married to Sue, a friend from High school. I am so sorry for your loss, Sue. My condolences to the whole family.

Wow, don't know where to begin. I remember first time I met you with my sister, Sue, you were on motorcycle. I remember all the times playing cards at your house. Although I moved away many years ago, we would come up and sometimes camped in your yard. I will never forget you. RIP my brother.
