"In December 2006, I sent Jim a little gift for Christmas. I never thought much about it after that. In May 2007, I received a letter from him apologizing because he had never sent me a thank you note.....WHO does that??? I was SO taken back that he took the time to write me...I am sorry I never got to meet him but I still feel he was a part of my life and will forever be!"
