    Sorry to hear that Jim passed away. We had reconnected about 2 years ago when he recognized me at a farm sale. Then about 2 months ago we spent several times in a pick up truck driving around the farm & talking farm & family. Jim graduated a year ahead of me at Clinton Central. I’m thankful for the time we spent this spring. George Fox
