He was my best friend. He was the most giving person I ever knew. He could do anything he wanted to. I continue to model my life after him. I know with all my heart that he is in heaven and some day we will play together again.

Played with Jim in rookie ball in Marion, Va. A shortstop from Vegas. Cannon arm, fast, all the tools. I used to pal around with Jim and Marshall Brant. We got to be pretty good friends.

In 76 at the end of the summer I stopped into Lynchburg to see them both. I remember seeing a knot on his back, in the lower spine area. We discussed this. He said he was fine. That winter I heard through the grapevine that he was sick, very sick. I tracked down his number and got in touch with whom I believe was his mother. What she told me floored me. Jim was down to like 70 lbs and was very close to death. I don't remember much else from the conversation. Jim died a couple days later.

Those old minor league days seem very fuzzy to me now. It was a long time ago, but I will always remember Jim. The straight blond hair parted in the middle, his model good looks. His quiet unassuming nature. His funny- looking white cleats. I think about him from time to time. About why. They say things happen for a reason. I don't know. I do know one thing, that Jim was a great guy and died way before his time.

I grew up with Jimmy. Our families did a lot together. My older brother Terry played ball with Jimmy. He was a wonderful person and friend. Think of him often. Such a well rounded guy; loved to hear him play the piano!!
