Delta, I am deeply saddened by the news of Jim’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May you find peace and comfort. I met Jim while he was stationed at Offutt Air Force Base. He was always thoughtful, caring and fun loving. He has a special place in my heart forever. I will cherish the memories of him.
