Holly often invited us to spend some summer vacations at Jim's home on the river in Au Gres. Jim had such a big heart. He was always very welcoming and hospitable. He made sure we felt welcomed. I have so many fond memories cooking, eating, talking, playing games, boating, and watching fireworks at his fabulous house. My deepest condolences to the family. ---Rumi

Many, many thoughts and prayers to the entire family. I have a very fond memory is of a weekend at Jim's lake house with Heidi, Mark, and Melinda. Jim was so gracious. I know he loved his family (including the dogs). He will be missed.
