    My sincere condolences to Jim’s family. Jim and I were close friends during our school years in Fernandina and while playing together on numerous sports teams from Little League through High School. Jim always inspired me to not only do better in sports but even more so in the classroom where he excelled..

    Because of a family commitment, I will not be able to make Jim’s service on the 22nd. I had hoped to be there and share some of the many fond memories I have as a result of our friendship. My prayers and thoughts are with Jim’s family at this difficult time.
