Memories

It was so wonderful working with Jim at Viratec and a learning experience plus it was always fun. I think a person can work together rather well as long as there is humor in life. I cherished the relationship he had also with my husband, Michael and the connection he had with AA - a life altering event that continued throughout his life and gave him a very good philosophy for living and treating other people well. I enjoyed a visit with Jim after he was diagnosed with lung cancer and he was very optomistic and this helps everyone around him I know. My heart aches for you and I am so sorry for your loss. To you Shirley, I know that your children will be your strength as well as all of the wonderful memories which will sustain you in your life. Love continues and lasts forever. You are all in my thoughts every step of the way.
