He always wished the best for Mike and I. He never said anything negative always positive. Jimmy is going to be missed by everyone that knew him. My condolences to his family.

  10. I can’t say much, I’m very torn in the fact that my friend of 30 years is gone. He would have not wanted us to cry about this but I’m finding it hard not too. My heart goes out to his family and a simple two words "Elephant Shoes" which meant alot between him and I. I will miss him with all my heart. Goodbye Jim!!!

So Play on my dear friend, Play on and let them remember how "Tequila!" is supposed to be played and don’t you dare let Gabriel tell you different. Brightest Blessings Jim, till we meet again.

    I went to high school with Jimmy (James) and had great time walking the halls of Chief Sealth. Once we graduated we went different paths. He was well-liked by everyone who met him. Have not seeing him in so many years, hearing about this has made time stop. I’m so very sorry for the loss of a wonderful person who has touched the hearts from friends and family and a fellow service member who served for this country. My deepest condolences go out to everyone in this difficult time. I have given a moment of silence for "Jimmy", once a friend, always a friend.
