So sorry to hear of this great guy's passing. Had a quick visit just a few days ago in the post office. He was liked and respected by everyone.
My sympathy to each of you,

Many of us worked with Jim for years, he was a great guy always in a good mood and easy to laugh. Always willing to help and going above and beyond his own job description. Going to miss seeing him, from the Woodlawn grounds crew !
