I had not seen or heard anything about Jim since he was about 18. He was a good friend who often visited with me in Lawrence when I was a lonely single teen mom. life went on I married and moved away. I am so glad to see he had a good life and leaves a legacy. I have thought about him over the years always fondly. My thoughts go to his wife and kids I am sure he will be missed.
