I was shocked to hear of Jim's passing. Jim has worked for me on the Ericsson project at HP for the last several years. As Jim's Project Manager, I always enjoyed talking with him during my visits to Ericsson. We would always compare stories of Mia and my granddaughter who is 2 and lives with us. Jim loved Mia and it was very evident. It is a tragic loss for her to lose her dad at such an young age. Jim was a great guy and will be missed. My condolences and prayers of peace for the family. Jon Hines, October 8, 2015 Jim was a wonderful person. He was warm, brilliant and tough which is a combination I have not or will not see again. He could make you laugh when it was hard to smile, Jim had the gift of laughter. He always put family and friends first and was as loyal as a friend could be. I could write a book on all the qualities Jim possessed but for now I just want to express my condolences to all that loved Jim. There is no measurement of how much he will be missed. Richard Hanna, October 7, 2015 To live in the hearts of those you love is to never die. The Stephanies and I will keep you in our hearts forever and will do everything we can for Mia. Rest in Peace. Michael Bertram, October 7, 2015 I am terribly sorry to hear about Jim. He was a beautiful person and a wonderful friend. Daniel Gingrich, October 6, 2015 I am so very sorry to hear about Jim. I've gotten to know the boys since they were in grade school and watched them grow into strong men. Barbara, my heart breaks with you, and I'm sending you all love and prayers. Ed, you are like my second son, and I am so sorry that you are going through this. I love you all Brenda Ingram, October 6, 2015
