My condolences to the family. My Mom and I knew Jim as "Walt". On behalf of my mother (Rosemary Ridd Liese) and I, we send our prayers. I know my mom, and my Uncle Gene Ridd (good friend of Jim), and Jim are all at peace in heaven now.
Funny story: Years ago, my mother told me it was okay to dip the communion in the wine during communion. When I went to get the communion wine from Jim (Walt), he said I could not do that. Haha.
