I'll always remember Jim as a wonderful friend and extremely talented singer and artist. I've told many people how I had learned so much just by standing next to him during each rehearsal and concert over the 11 years I knew him. As his illness kept getting the better of him, he always dreaded not being there for Wednesday night rehearsals. "What will ever do on Wednesday nights if my voice gives out?" he would say. I miss the great lunches and conversations that Jim, Steve Dilley, and myself had at the Office tavern and at Hop Jacks. I can envision him now somewhere in the great beyond, listening to his beloved classical music and acapella recordings and joining in with the angels when they need a good bass singer. Thanks, Jim, for being a wonderful friend.
