This is in remembrance of my very dear buddy of 50 years. We began Drake law school together in 1968. We have had many enjoyable and humorous times in the years since. I never knew anybody who had more friends than Jim. I am very grateful that he and I visited one final time Sunday morning and just a few hours before he moved from labor to reward. You are a very special man, James Harold. Rest in peace, partner.

It is so hard to lose one's parents. You feel as if you are not prepared. The truth is our parents start the day we are born, teaching us, to carry the legacy forward. And we do. Much LOVE and SUPPORT to you as you move forward.

Jim and Sue have been friends for 20 years. Had great times having drinks to going to Puertao Vallarta. Always had great fun, laughs and good times. I leave for Jamaica on January 2 will not return until January 10. I will miss his funeral but will think of him and will have a number of drinks in his honor, will even have a rum and coke for him and I don't like rum! Jim and Sue were the kindness people I have ever known!

RIP Jimmy ( as Sue always called you)
