Jim, so long ago, 1979ish, you rode with me at the Livingston County Sheriff's Department, you were selling cars, and your dream was to be a Livingston County Sheriff's Deputy. I was so happy your dream came true. I was honored to have you work with me when you came on part time, and it was a joy to serve with you on the midinight shift when u came on full time. 23 years after your passing, I was honored to do a comedy show in your benefit, and have your sons at the show. I left for California in 1983, and we lost touch, but I think of you often, and remember the many laughs we shared, and the smiles and laughs you gave others with your great sense of humor. You are missed.
