    I was shocked to hear of Jim’s passing! Jim was quite a guy and was a valuable part of the team way back when. Each time I think of the patent days on Main St. I smile and remember all the personalities. Jim in particular, with his “statements” coming from behind the dividers and roars of laughter afterwards by the entire room. We will all miss him.
    Much love to you and the family.
