I knew Jim in school and always enjoyed his company.  We reconnected after the reunions and became close.  Had breakfast with him and some other classmates and totally enjoyed our time together.  It was a sudden shock to me when I heard about his passing.  So sorry to hear this a few weeks ago.  I will miss him dearly.  Rest in peace, my friend.
