Bid a farewell to a kind and gentle man who loved to visit me at BU. I loved to listen to his stories of trials and celebrations. He loved that I called my shoes, "Big Girl Shoes" and my infamous "How you doin". Him and Joanie are a wonderful inspiration. He will be missed.

I always enjoyed playing bridge at Venetian Falls with Jim. He was a very kind and thoughtful man and a real gentleman. I express my sincere condolences to his wife and family. He will be missed. May he Rest In Peace.
