I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s death. I met him and Ethel in the late 60’s when I joined First Christian Church, in Norfolk. I got to know him even better when my first husband joined Khedive Shrine Temple; as well through my joining the Ladies Oriental Shrine where Ethel was a long-time member. Jim’s quiet demeanor and gentle ways have always admired by me. He was loved by many and will be missed by many.
