Jim was simply the best friend anyone could have had.  I remember arriving home from college during Chrustimas break and suddenly finding out that his hypoglycemia took his life during an outdoor event with his fiance's parents.  That was one of the most difficult moments in my young life.  He was noble and honorable above almost anyone I've ever encountered.  His absence has been a real loss, one, I admit, I'm still dealing with a bit.  We needed more like Jim.
