I am very saddened to hear of Jim's passing. I knew Jim from being a former member of Orchard Park Post 567, where Jim was a member. I am honored to have known this man as he was a good friend and a very special individual. My sincere condolences go out to Jim's wife Billie, his family, and friends. May Jim remain forever in our hearts. R.I.P., my friend, we will meet again.
