    Jim and my husband were both visitors to the Milky Way everyday for strawberry shakes and sweet tea. It was just their thing to pay for the others, whomever got there first. He would stop in at my husband’s shop (The Wizard Detail Shop) and shoot the breeze about submarines. He will certainly be missed and was a good man. Sorry for your loss.
