Jim was a neighbor. Whenever I walked my dogs if he was sitting outside reading the newspaper he always spoke to me. Nice guy, very interesting conversations. He really loved his cat Sidney, she would be sitting on the top step not too far from him. I always apologized to him because my little dogs loved to antagonize Sidney, he’d laugh it off. It saddens me that he is gone. Condolences to his family and close friends. He was a nice guy.
