My experience with Jim was in my last year of high school and it's sounds as though Jim continued to encourage others to go that extra mile through his entire life, just as he did when I would lag behind during our soccer practices. I was always the shortest guy on the team no matter what sport I played. But "Jimbo" or "Bo" as we called him was always shouting at me with his half grin "come on Bailes! You can do better than that! Just push a little harder! ". In baseball he played every inning like it was the 9th inning of the state championship game. If he could say something to us right now, I'm sure it would be to get out there and do your best. Obstacles are only in your mind! That's what Jim taught me. Love & peace be with you and your family until we meet again.
