Sandra, Frank, and Tamara, please accept Susan's and my heartfelt condolences on the loss of a husband, father, and a good friend. You know when someone likes you when they kid around with you and Jim never stopped kidding me. Yet, he always asked how Susan was doing with her cancer fight. Sleep well, Jim. 73 DE VE3LJQ.

Sandra, Frankie and Tamara, words cannot describe how much I cherished the time and friendship I shared with Jim, he always had a quick reply to all my smart comments, as I did to his if people didn't know us they would think we didn't like each other, but it was quite the opposite. I will miss him and he will be a part of me forever. Love you guys.
