Condolence: My condolences to all the family and friends of Jim.

One of my fondest childhood memories was playing 500 with Kevin and his Dad. I've never seen someone hit a ball so far and accurately than Jim. Every single hit seemed like a Major League Baseball home run and it seemed so effortless.

Trips to trout lake quarry in Innerkip for a day of swimming and a picnic with bluegrass country playing on the radio are also memories I look back on with a smile.

Jim was always kind to me and didn't hesitate to give good advise when the opportunity arose. He treated me like one of his children rather than a friend theirs.

Kevin, contact me and we can get together and share stories of how our lives have become more complicated than those simpler days!

Bob Krauskopf,
