    Jim, you will be truly missed. I have known Jim since I was sixteen...he was my stepdad. I have a lot of fond memories of him. I was so happy to have him spend Christmas and Thanksgiving with my family. My mother (Kathy Bradburn) was thrilled to have him come and visit her the last 3-4 yrs of his life. He was such a joy to be around. Jim....I love you and will miss you!
