    I am so sorry for Jim's passing, I had seen him a few years ago on a flight and had always hoped to visit him in Florida. We went to high school together and he showed me how I could add more horsepower to my car. He will be missed and I have nothing but good memories of ticktock. He was a great guy and friend who left us too early
  • Dave Hogan  - My long time friend
    My heart is broken with your passing my long time friend. We have been through a lot in one lifetime, and can't believe I'm not going be able to see, speak or text with you again. We helped each other through both good and hard times on numerous occasions. I still have laughter from many of our discussions and episodes ringing in my ears. You will never be forgotten, and peace to you my friend.
