Jim and I walked home from Highland school very often. He was a life long friend. They moved to Hall Street, and Rose had to put up with three other boys, in her house during summers. Those boys were Tony , Frank, and me. We would walk to and from Redwood high school, everyday. Jim your in my thoughts always. Jim was a devout Catholic, and a good person. Miller memorial chapel is right across from Jim’s first home. God bless the family, and my friend, Jim.
