Was out to the cemetery in May. Missed your stories about all the people out there. Happy 71st today. You left us entirely too soon.

Can't believe it's been over 6 years since the last time we were together. Missing you Clyde. Always.
Posted by Fran Bacon on 14th February 2018
Still have days when I expect you to call and say "Just checking in". Miss you.
Posted by Dennis Lopach on 14th February 2018
We think about you often but especially at this time of year. You were the life of the party. Thankfully there are more than enough stories to go around. We miss you.

We are in Australia where we were when you passed. We have your music with us. And think about you a lot. We miss you Jimmy Love you

This would have been the 70th. Would have been great to have another surprise party. Still missing you.

Miss you, Cuz. I truly wish we'd had the time we'd planned.

Five years is a long time but it seems like a few days ago when it comes to you, Jim. Sheila and I still think about you, talk about you and miss you. I came across one of your CDs in a drawer the other day--Cajun and Irish songs. It was not one of your best, but it was you. Full of life and sharing with your friends. We miss you a lot.

5years and still missing you. Remembering how we used to make valentines, you always grabbed the best paper, glue and whined and smiled at mom to get your way. Dimples were always charming.

Well Jimmy we are here in Australia where we learned of your death 5 years ago. Our thoughts of you remain vivid, our loss profound. You left us way too early. A loss of such a good friend...funny,great choices in music (all music!) and an unbelievable impish sense of humor. Such a big hole that can never be filled. We lift a pint to you at the Missoula Club every September. Wish you were there to share it..

Happy birthday, Jim. We all think of you often --
Posted by Fran Bacon on 11th June 2016
Happy 69th birthday. Will toast you tonight. Missed a great crew at the cemetery this year. You would have loved it. Still missing you.
Posted by ANDREA GALLOWAY on 11th June 2016
HEY JIM....HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, WE'LL RAISE OUR GLASS TO YOU TONIGHT!
Posted by Fred Keast on 15th February 2016
Jim, I had an occasion to drive through Yreka in August -- scene of 1) modern history's least attended public hearings and 2) most improbable string of tavern shuffleboard successes. Think of you often --
Posted by Dennis Lopach on 14th February 2016
We miss you, Big Fellow. No one has the same twisted sense of humor that you did. There's not as much fun and laughter. But there are lots of great memories.
Posted by Fran Bacon on 14th February 2016
It has already been 4 years since you left us. Still a big hole in our lives. Thinking of you often.
Posted by Janet Rudolph on 12th June 2015
We missed you so much at the reunion. It was hard to believe that you wouldn't be walking in the door any minute. Miss Neill had our 6th grade picture, and she had those of us who were at the banquet line up for another picture the same way we were in the 6th grade picture. You weren't in the 6th grade picture, either. There are still too many empty places where you belong.

Johnny B here just checking in. Miss you, Clyde.
Posted by Dennis Lopach on 11th June 2015
Your Helena friends are thinking of you today. We do almost every day. We miss you a lot. More than your cajun food and bizarre sense of humor. It was a lot of fun being your friend.
Posted by ANDREA GALLOWAY on 11th June 2015
Hey Jimmy, Harvest is early this year. You would have been traveling here for peaches this year...they would be gone by our trip through Montana in Sept. We'll eat one for you! George and Andy
Posted by Fran Bacon on 11th June 2015
Another birthday, Jim. Went to see many of your classmates on alumni week-end. 50 years is a long time. Lots of stories about you, which didn't surprise me at all. You would have loved it and were truly missed. Love, Fran
Posted by Frank Buckley on 14th February 2015
I too miss you jimmy boy. We had some very good and interesting times as we shall again. Later my very good friend.
Posted by ANDREA GALLOWAY on 14th February 2015
George and I raised our glasses to you downunder while listening to your great music. You are so missed.
Posted by Andrea Kelly on 14th February 2015
Bruce, Carol, Rob and I had a great day of golf today and we toasted you at the turn and at the end of our round. We envisioned you in the cart always the swing coach. You left way too soon and we miss you dearly. Not fair to any of us.
Posted by Dennis Lopach on 14th February 2015
We're still missing you every day. Wondering what problems you would have barely skirted. What crazy schemes you would have organized. It's just not as much fun with you gone, Jim. What have they got you doing over there?
Posted by Fran Bacon on 14th February 2015
Remembering you again today. Still missing your phone calls and your laugh.
Posted by Fran Bacon on 13th June 2014
Another year, another birthday passed this week. Thinking of you and remembering your laugh and dimples. Miss you.
Posted by ANDREA GALLOWAY on 11th June 2014
Well, Jimmy it doesn't get any easier. You just can't be forgotten, you are missed daily. I'm reminded of you by music, food, sniffs, beer and an occasional impish grin from out of nowhere. You will always be missed our friend.
Posted by Frank Buckley on 11th June 2014
I have a profound sense of respect for Jim professionally and many warm feelings for him personally. If he were here I have a pretty good idea what he would be doing. Miss you, my friend!

I think Jimmy has been “checking in.” I had a dream about a week ago that we had a voice message from Jim telling us that he was “checking in”. In the dream Jim said it had been a while since we talked but that he was thinking of us. I went to replay the message for Dennis and it was gone. End of dream. Crazy. Greg Petesch had a dream about Jimmy about a week ago -- the night before he left for Yellowstone Park. Jim looked young and said that “you sort of get to choose” what you look like when you come back to visit. In the dream, he told Greg that he was on a 3-day pass but couldn’t go to the park with him because he had a lot of people that he needed to see and not enough time. One of our other friends had a very vivid dream about Jim about a week ago. Don’t know the details of this one. Has anyone else heard from Jim?
Posted by ANDREA GALLOWAY on 14th February 2014
Jimmy Boy you are so missed. We raised our pints of beer to you at the Missoula Club this past September...our annual trek east is not the same without you.
Posted by Sally Bush on 14th February 2014
Ah Jimmy! How I wish you were here! Greg and I made a batch of REAL Nebraska runzas last weekend, and we wanted so much to share those with you along with sharing more of the joy and laughter that surrounded you wherever you went. I miss your smile and count my friendship with you as one of the great blessings in my life. .
Posted by Sheila Lopach on 14th February 2014
Hard to believe it has been two years without Jim. I think of him every day and feel so fortunate to have been one of his many friends. I miss you very much, Jimmy.
Posted by Zelta Preston on 14th February 2014
Thinking of you today and remembering your happy smile, and how you faced each new challenge with a positive attitude. A great example for all of us!
Posted by V.J. Block on 14th February 2014
I miss you more each year. I try to remember all the fun times we had and the cute things you did when you were little. What a cutie. And your famous line about age 4 was "Kenny did it Mama, Kenny did it."
Posted by Fran Bacon on 14th February 2014
You always told "Bac" to get a place down south where the family could come. We have it and wish you were here to share it. Thinking of you a lot today. Still miss you daily.
Posted by Andrea Kelly on 14th February 2014
Missing James C pretty much every day some way or another. Wishing he could be here to enjoy our lives together. I bet he never thought he would leave such a huge void in so many lives but he most certainly did. We all need to keep that in mind as we honor his legacy.
Posted by Fran Bacon on 11th June 2013
Thinking of you a lot today. It would have been your 66th birthday. Still miss you Love, Fran
Posted by Zelta Preston on 11th June 2013
Whenever I was in the Portland area traveling for John Deere Co.; Jim was always willing to meet for dinner. We had such wonderful visits. Randy Preston
Posted by Zelta Preston on 11th June 2013
Thinking of you today, as well as many other days. Still hard to believe you are not here to celebrate your birthday. Love, Zelta
Posted by ANDREA GALLOWAY on 11th June 2013
Jim, You are with us on every car trip and vacation....your wonderful eclectic music goes with us everywhere. Peaches are good this year, we'll be tasting them and thinking of you.
Posted by Fran Bacon on 24th May 2013
Your ears should have been burning today as we had lots of stories and memories of you while we did the cemetery decorations. Always think of you and miss you this day. Love, Fran

I just learned of Jim's passing. Although I first met Jim professionally, I soon realized he was a man of extraordinary kindness, understanding, humor and character. He will be sorely missed but we are all better for having known him.
Posted by ANDREA GALLOWAY on 15th February 2013
Jimmy, One long year since you left us. We are in Australia where we were when we learned of your passing. You can rest assured that your music lives on...we drank to you on our first night here while listening to your wonderful eclectic music. What a friend, what a person...the void cannot be filled but the memories live on. Thank-you
Posted by Jack Haffey on 14th February 2013
The special thoughts here of friendship and love for Jim are such clear evidence of how a wonderful person touched so many lives, so many people, each in a sincere way. we are all so much the better because of having known you,Jim.
Posted by Fran Bacon on 14th February 2013
What a year this has been. Miss you and think of you often. Today I have been remembering all the fun times we have had and how they have all ended, but what beautiful memories I have of you. Love you.
Posted by Zelta Preston on 14th February 2013
Jim, you have been in my thoughts all week, and been remembering a year ago when we received the shocking news of your death. Tears still come when I think of you, and the empty spot you have left in our family. You will always be in my heart. Love you.
Posted by Sheila Lopach on 14th February 2013
It has been a very long year without Jim. I've laughed and cried and had the pleasure of getting to know Jim's family and his out-of-state friends. I still expect him to call and "check in". I was so fortunte to have Jim for a friend, but it is awfully hard to lose someone so special.
Posted by Dick Reiser on 14th February 2013
Clyde, You were missed but well remembered at out law school reunion.
Posted by Larry Nordell on 14th February 2013
Jim was on my mind today - thinking how much I enjoyed his dry wit and his superb email jokes and how much I miss him - sharing with another old friend who had not seen him in years and who did not know he had died.
