Many years ago I had the privilege of knowing both Jim and Lula in Crimora where they then resided. Jim befriended me by selling me my first car, a 1953 Chevrolet convertible. Thru the years I often thought of Jim and Lula as I also had the opportunity to become friends with other members of their family( Wayne and Wanda). Rest in Peace Jim and thanks for all you did for me during my early years.
