[Jim on a mountain.]
I have always been very careful with the word friend. I think most throw around the word much too casually, much too casually. I know a lot of people, have a lot of acquaintance’s, but friends-very few.
My definition has, and always will be someone you can call at 3AM and they will bail you out-without question. They’re gonna give you a lot of shit, and ride your ass, but deservedly so. They’re allowed because; after all, they are our friend.
Jim has left a wide path and has touched a lot of people’s lives. His is the kind of life led that should be on the news, it was a positive life, a productive life, a life lived well, lived always in search of the great wonders this World is capable of showing those that search. But Jim will not be on the 6:00 o’clock news, he wouldn’t want that. his was a life of substance-not perception.
Good bye Jim, all of us that you touched will have a space reserved for your memories, and the World is a lesser place without you.
