    When I think of Jim I can hear him ask my daughter Mandy , “Are you kiddin?” When my boys, Kenny & Steve Gonzales were growing up with Pat & Mike, he would always ask her that! Such a funny guy! You will surely be missed!

    Jim and I met in April 1977. We coached a Little League baseball team. Our sons played on the team. During the next 40 years we embarked on a series of adventures. Up or down, thin or flush, He was my best friend. Thanks for always being there Jim.

    I can still hear your laugh. You had the best laugh. I can still see your smile. It reached your eyes and the souls of those you chose to let into your life. Your kindness and gentleness was unsurpassed. You loved with your whole heart. Always, always one of the good guys. I miss you and love you. Judy, Summer and all of us are more the better for having known you.. You will live on in our hearts. Judy, thank you for bringing Jim into my life. Jim, thank you for being my brother. We will see you again….❤
