    We are saddened to hear about Jim and Ann. We have known Jim for many years and boated and traveled with them. We also stayed with them on our way to and from Palm Springs. Jim was a generous, fun loving and very active friend, as was Ann. We will miss our friends! Jim had expressed on more than one occasion that he feared his son and what he felt he could be capable of because of his size and mental problems.
