    My sincere condolence’s to all of Jim’s family. Our friendship was too brief due to us moving from Cornell to Arizona in 1980 but I have many fond memories of that period in our lives. There are two things I’m sure of. He’s in a better place now and he will be very missed my many. RIP JIM. Norm Sellers
