    I worked with Jim at Honeywell for approximately 20 years. His passing is indeed a sad day. He was such a nice person and mild mannered. It was enjoyable to know him and work with him. I cannot make the visitation tonight but wanted to express my condolences.

    So sorry to hear about cus Jimmy, He was always such a special guy so nice and always easy to talk to. So hard to believe he’s gone at such a young age and so sad we hadn’t been connected in years. I guess the distance and different interest who knows but always know Jimmy is and always was a great person and will be missed.
    Sorry we wern’t able to make the visitation. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
