Sorry to hear about Jim, we grew up together as little kids in the San Rafael Meadows.  We were best friends in grade school.  I wish the best for his family. RIP Jim.

Bob and I were so saddened to read about Jimmy.  Jimmy and I were childhood friends living in San Rafael Meadows as were a lot of us.  We would as kids sneak out of the house and all meet at the big oak tree up the street and laugh that we did it even though we were afraid of the bats in the tree.  Over the years we stayed in touch and know about his many mishaps with illnesses.  Jimmy was a great guy who was fun, loved to talk to Bob about the Navy and tease me.  You are missed my friend you fought a great fight  You will always be with is. Our well wishes to you Diane who stayed by him thorough all this, our Love and support to his children.  Jimmy you now can rest in peace.

I too remember Kim and the San Rafael neighborhood we all grew up in.   Louise and Rod and I along with Jim all went to school from day one through high school.  We all went our different ways yet my memories are still so clear of those early days  . Kim was always very sweet and a nice guy.

Sharing this for those who didn't see the obituary.    Jim was my first husband and we remained friends all through the years for our daughter, Traci.    He was a great father and friend!
