Jim was my best childhood friend!
We spent a lot of time together in high school. Spent almost every Wednesday afternoon skipping school and going to Greenfield to bowl. We also spent a lot of time skating at sunset park. I have fond memories and will always treasure our friendship!
My condolences to the Betty and the family!
