To Jim's Family. I am very sorry to hear about Jim's passing. Unfortunately I did not know Jim really well, except for saying "hi" at Company functions. I did work at MCD for a year, before transferring to ADW, so I did know many of the people he worked with. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. Greg R
