Jim was a good friend in both Hilo and when I visited him in Ravenna. I remember especially Guido's Pizza where he used to work and slipping on the lake ice after he warned me to be careful. Lot's of good memories of him and I am real sorry that he is gone from my life.
We will all miss you "scubaprowoody" especially your kind heart, infectious smile and laughter, and your volunteer years with the All American Soap Box Derby. Aloha.
