"First & foremost, Jim loved his daughters, his siblings, his firiends & extended family. And of course, his late Mom & Dad, the latter who Jim cared for until Ollie?s death. Jim was smart, funny, sensitive & thoughtful. He always asked how I was doing; he was a good listener & a great storyteller. I feel blessed that I had the chance to reconnect with Jim. RIP dear friend ??. Nancy Bralick Blomquist"
