  1. As one of my best friends in life I will miss Jim dearly. Even though we went in different directions in life Jim has been a lifelong friend. In fact, Jim was my first friend in life. We were about 4 years old when we first met when he lived across from the river in Trenton NJ. We went to elementary and Junior High School together and pretty much hung around together every day. We did a lot of fishing and camping together. Jim always had a great sense of humor and a way of looking at life that kept things simple. Our gang was more like a bunch of brothers and included Jim’s brother Dennis, Steve, George, Danny, Joe, Bill, Foster, Jeff, Earl, Doug, and Roger. I’m sure all of these guys will miss Jim as much as I will. We all use to meet at Jim’s house in the morning before school. How Jim’s dad would put up with all of us is beyond me. He was a great man and was always like a father to us. Eventually we all went from teenagers to young men. At that time Jim met Carol and never turned back. It was clear that Jim and Carol were meant together. I’m glad that they went on to have a great family together. My deepest condolences to Jim’s entire family. He will be deeply missed.
