I will always remember you, Jim, as having a devilish twinkle in your eye and a big, cute smile on your face.  You were so fun, a star athlete, and helped bring good energy to our class. Hoping you are having a great time wherever you are...tossing a few touch downs, hitting some home runs, catching a few fish, and munching on a Nut Goodie while hanging with your buddy, Sitka.  Enjoy the peace, Jim.
