    I knew Jim from his volunteer service as a Long Term Care Ombudsman with SeniorCare, Inc. in Gloucester. I enjoyed spending time with him and loved hearing his stories! I remember our mutual enjoyment in talking about a good breeze for sailing, his world history knowledge, in his assisting his extended family at their time in need, and his being busy while getting around in the Audi. He will be missed, I’m fortunate to have known him, and my sincere sympathy to the family.
