    So sorry to hear Jim's gone. My friend, my Captain. my boss, etc. Lots of gigs that will never be forgotten. Best of all, he was my fishing buddy. Trout on the Hammonansett, Largemouth at Lake Lillinoa and bass on BI. Drum Corps competitions were attended by many friends. Jim was a world champ one year when he played. Rock on Jim. Tom Sanford
