It's so hard to find the words to express how deeply saddened I was to hear of Jim's passing. Although I hadn't seen him in several years, I always thought he was a really great guy. I know the pain you're going through only too well. Robin, Lisa, Jim, Scott, and the grandchildren that I never met, I'm so sorry for your loss! I know he will be deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
