So sad to hear of JIM'S passing.  Sincere condolences goes out to Debbie and the rest of Jims family and friends.  Jim was a great man, had a heart as big as the sun.  I remember back when, when Jim and his dad had the garage in the middle of town and he would always let us kids bring our cars up and work on them and he would aways help any of us out.  Jim lead a great life, he will be remembered by many.
