Jim had a way of welcoming you while giving off the dad vibe of don’t try me. I respected the hell out of him. He was a hero and a roll model to me. I can say with full honesty that I loved him very much and will miss him. He had a good heart and a great sense of humor. I didn’t even think it was possible for him to die, he was such a strong man. I’m a better person for knowing him and the world was a better place with him in it. Goodbye “old man”.
