My life has been like an ocean voyage. I've experienced my share of heavy weather, but mostly it's been smooth sailing, with fair winds and following seas!

James Arness was a REAL GEM! As I've said before, he may not be here on earth, but he'll always live in my heart.

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!

I've been thinking about our hero, on and off, all day. Even my mom talked lovingly about him today with me. A great man who will always endure in my heart.

Jim was a beautiful man. I was blessed to have known him. He was kind, gentle, soft spoken, and so funny. He'll always be in my thoughts and heart. He will be missed to all that love this Wonderful man.
