So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Prayers and condolences to the family. Jim and I became friends in the early 90's. Jim's company (Flowmole) did directional boring for the phone company in Florida and many of his jobs were in my area. We had a good working relationship which turned into a true friendship. Jim and I spent many days Bass fishing, camping and cooking together.Due to Jims failing health and our busy life we were not able to get together for the last fews years. Jim we will miss you dearly.
