    What a kind, funny, wonderful man Jim was. I was privileged to have known and worked with him years ago, and cherish the memories. Rest in peace.

    One of my oldest friends. I’ll miss seeing & talking with Jim at Back Bench meetings as well as those occasional lunches at the PR. Jim was always friendly , always positive. Always encouraging & ready to help. God bless Jim & Mollie. You’ll be remembered in prayer.
