I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Jim’s family, Mary, and all of the people that Jim loved. I can only imagine how difficult this time is for all of you. I hope that the love and support of those around you, and the knowledge that there is another angel in Heaven watching over you, will be of some comfort now, and in the days ahead. Every time I am in Dallas, or see the Cowboys or Mavericks play, I will think of him and smile. Please know that I am praying that you all will have the strength that you need to cope with this tragic loss.
