    This is Memorial Day and Jim should have been at the NSB Service, rather than us memorializing him. He was a mainspring in this building for years - even taking over the electrical committee as the neared 90. I helped slightly when he repaired the West staircase windows - but remember him mostly working on the old dock. He had turned 80 and I was a youthful 73, but no way could I keep up with him. We re-fastened all the dock moorrings and put in 20 ft. pipes to stabilize it. We probably gave that old relic (the dock), that is) four more years of life. Then Hurricane Francis did it in. He lost his precious sailboat to Francis, as well (but I think I saw Mary Lou dancing on the balcony as the old ship went down. Then Jim was instrumental in getting the canal cleared - arranging for the crane from Gerry's Marinia. With Tom G. & Don B. doing most of the work- a good time was had by all.
    Jim always blamed me an my "ilk" for his hearing loss. One of us "Damned fools" parked an F-86 with the engine running outside his office window and the whinning engine did him in. Truth is everyone who was around jet engines for a while couldn't hear. But we all laughed it off.
    He served his Country well and gloriously and served his neighborhood, as well. "TEN HUT" PRESENT ARMS. A SALUTE TO A GRAND OLD SOLDIER.!! We don't see his like...not very often.
    God Bless!

    My thoughts and prayers are with you always. I'm sorry to hear about Jims' passing. He was a good neighbor. I will surly miss seeing him at the elevator.

    In May 1981, Kathy and I moved to Florida and were neighbors of Jim and Mary Lou for a short time. When we moved we came with long hair,a fiesty dog and two beat up vehicles. Jim and I had words once about our dog chasing he and Mary Lous friendly squirells. All resolved with no problem. My old truck and me got a roofing job and while readying the truck for work I completely messed up the carburator. Jim watched me struggle then came over and rebuilt the carburator and fixed my truck. After we moved Jim and Mary Lou would stop by our carlot on their way to or from Ocala. Jim was a good man to the core. He was a good friend to my parents,Bonnie and Charles Snell. I told my father of Jims passing with a heavy heart. My Dad spoke of their years of friendship and neighbors. Jim,we will miss you and will see you on the other side. Thinking of you Mary Lou.
