Jim was our photographer for the beach house. When the house was completely destroyed by Hurricane Ike, I was anticipating what the insurance company might want. I sent Jim an e-mail asking if he had any interior shots which might help in assessing the value of the contents. I recall saying,"It's not like we had a baby grand piano or anything like that." He sent back a retort that indeed we had had a baby grand piano but we had probably not noticed it under the original Picasso painting on the wall. Accompanying a reply so typical of Jim was a photo showing our main room complete with the piano and the painting! Wonderful sense of humor and talent combined. He will be greatly missed.

I could never have imagined what a dear and lasting relationship a sister in law could have been blessed to have shared with you for the past 30 years. You brought so many smiles, laughs and fond memories Ill always treasure and hold in my heart. I miss you so much in so many ways.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim's family, you, Jack and all the neices and nephews. You and Jim were certainly different personalities but very close brothers and best friends. Jim, you , Jack, your mother and especially your dad were a very big part of my life when we were all growing up. While he is now in a better place, he will be missed by his family, by me and by all those who knew him well.

To my best friend: There were so many things I always wanted to tell you through the years. You were the best, even though I did not agree with you sometimes, but you still ending being right. You were always there for me, my family, and never complained one time. I always loved that quality in you. How do I get over this lost, because good friends are hard to find, harder to leave and impossible to forget. Jim you will always have a special place in my heart and I will never forget the wonderful life we shared. Say hello to my mother for me because you knew how much she loved you. Good bye my friend, may you rest in peace until we met again.
