Jim was a great guy.  He was Charlie Brown and I was Peppermint Patty in Mr. Buck's production of "Snoopy".  I had to sing "Poor Sweet Baby" to Jim while Jim laid his head in my lap.  For a 16 year old high school girl, it was VERY hard not to laugh.  Jim was one of my then boyfriend's best friends, and one of my now husband's best I was around Jim a lot.  Super guy that loved life!!!!

Jim was a great guy and great friend. Always getting in trouble and too many stories / laughs to mention. Like the time he fell off the platform while escorting the homecoming canidates or going to the disco at Indiana Beach or the senior class party. He will be missed.
