  14. Jim and I worked together in IBM’s Office Products in the late 70s and early 80s. I hadn’t seen him in many years, after I took an early out from IBM in 1992. I had thought of him many times and wondered how he was doing. Now I’m very sorry that I didn’t follow up on my thoughts. He was an active, intelligent, gentle and caring person, and I’m glad that I knew him. Had I heard earlier of his passing I would have attended the service.

  15. Love to you Barbara. You took amazing care of Jim and showed us what love looks like in sickness and in health. He was a good man, blessings.
