What a wonderful man. We have had the privilege of knowing Jim for almost 25 years. A true gentleman, the smile depicted in the picture is the mirror on his persona. Even in the last year, during his valiant fight against aging, we never saw Jim where he didn't have that smile. We will always remember him as a man who cherished his family and always enjoyed being with them, A sign of his outlook on life and proof that he was a devoted optimist was his insane loyalty to the Redskins. Go in peace, sir.
-Tom and Chris Panther, Sharps, VA.
