Whether I ran into Jim around town or stopped to visit when I saw you all sitting in your front yard, I have never known Jim to be anything but pleasant, warm, and welcoming. Always a smile.
Gloria I’m so sorry for your loss.

Jim was my first supervisor when I started to work for the USPS. I remember when he gave me my 1st paycheck, I said Thank you. He looked at me and said: No, I thanked you and appreciated you coming to work every day.
He was kind to coworkers and loved his family.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
