    I have not seen Jim since our Chief Sealth graduation. I do clearly remember him as a very nice guy. As a matter of fact one of the nicest men in the class of ‘71.

    His obituary gave me great insight as to what he has accomplished in his life since high school.

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your husband, and father.
    I hope my acknowledgement of his passing helps you through this difficult time.
