How is it possible to feel  you know  some one  you have never met in person ?

How is it consequently possible to feel such a deep sense of lose by his sudden passing ?

I think Jim exemplified the more specific  aspects of our hobby that we all share and love
Although he and I  had exchanged  many e-mails over the years about  a myriad of topics, I had never had the
opportunity to meet and greet him in person. The one year I did  a Dayton trip two years ago and managed to 
meet  a lot of his fellow  Floridian Contesters...   Jim was not there .... we  did commisserate with each other by e-mail
of that happening and  both thought  we  would   eventually have a face to a face. Alas  never to be ..
Jim may be gone  but  I am certain his indominable  sprit and passion  about  our  hobby  will live forever in all our  hearts.

73 and God Speed  old friend  and
Sincerest condolences to all his family.
