Barb, I remember meeting you and Jim back when David was still in college and thinking how lucky he was to have such terrific parents. I remember liking Jim right away - such great energy and depth of character. My dad died at 73 and it is much much too young. I'm very very sorry for your loss. David and Jay, my heart goes out to you.
