I met Jim when he and Elke accompanied Shirley to visit here. During the few days they spent with us I found Jim to be very personable and likable. Ever since that time I have considered Jim a friend. We enjoyed every minute of his companionship and his love of life. He lived it to the fullest extent.

I regret that I didn't accompany Audrey on one of her visits to the Seattle area. Jim will always remain a terrific person in my mind.

Via con Dios!

I, too, will always remember Jim as someone special. I enjoyed the time I spent with him and Elke on my visits to the Seattle area. The dinners were always so much fun as Jim really enjoyed good food. He was an excellent driver and tour guide and was always ready to take us for a ride. He was such a pleasant and fun-loving man. He will be missed.

Jim has been a very dear friend for over thirty years. I met Jim through Elke when we were teaching at Garfield High School and my husband, Lloyd also became friends. We all enjoyed the movies, symphony, hiking, camping, trips and dinners--we had great times together. After Lloyd died, Elke, Jim and I continued our activities plus we went on numerous auto trips--Jim loved driving. So many wonderful memories that you provided and you will live on in our hearts forever. Thank you for enriching my life.
Love, Shirley

I will always have loving, fond memories of Jim. He was a dear friend and neighbor. Despite our radically different political views, he was always there to support me when I was in need. He was a man full of love.

Jim, you and your many friends from childhood on had so much fun together! Tonight there is definitely more laughing in heaven. Your excellent sense of humor and infectious love of life enabled you to bring so much sunshine to the world. You now have an infinite amount of time to enjoy your most precious and very smart daughter.

~~ In one of the stars I shall be living
I shall be living in one of them
I shall be laughing
And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing
When you look at the sky of night!
