Barbara, Alex and Kurt,
I'm was so shocked and saddened to hear of Jim's passing. I was a patient of his since the '90's. I was happy to have him come to visit me at the track and share in some of my horses wins. I know he was especially fond of Cutsie Pie. I believe he had some win photos when he was with us and he was able to celebrate with us. I will miss his kindness and ability to joke around with me. If I was in pain he always made time to see me. I feel honored to have had a relationship with him. I know your hearts will never be the same, but just know that he adored each of you!

I’m so sad to hear this. I met Jim during pickup basketball games at OLG years ago. He was the nicest guy and great competitor. So sorry for your families loss.
