I knew Jim in the latter 1940's. His parents and my parents were best of friends during our growing stage from before school and during school. We were like one happy family during those days. Every weekend his family were at our house or my family was at their house. All of us kids were with in a year of each other. His two sisters, my brother and sister all played together during our childhood days. We had some wonderful times together. May Jim rest in peace.
