May Jim rest in peace!  He was my best friend growing up. I knew his sister and loved his parents.  As I spent a great deal of time at his house his parents were my second parents, disapplining me as much as my mom and dad.  We both went to NIU and were in each others weddings.  After we graduated Jim went on to dental school and the Army drafted me.  Like so many of us, we lost connection after my return which I deeply regret.  Again, rest in peace Jim.
