  1. Donna and I met Susan and Jim through Jim’s sister-in-law, Carol. We always enjoyed visits with Jim and talking all things education, business, and Apollo. He always expressed genuine interest in our lives and asked questions about how and what we were doing. Susan, please accept our heartfelt condolences and know you’re in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Jim and I played for a variety of Hornell events. In my home we’d set up to practice then Jim would say to my beagle Parker,”OK kid, it’s your turn!” Parker would then howl, “sing” through our first selection. At the end Jim would say, “OK Parker, you’re done.” What a loving, gentle, loving man with a supportive sense of humor.

  3. To Sue and family, we are grateful and blessed for the music that Jim provided through the years. Dad (Leo C.) loved playing bass and guitar with Jim. I’m sure they’ll be getting back at it once Jim gets home. God bless, Paul
