I am truly sorry for your loss. Mr. Suber always had a smile and a kind, funny word for everyone. May the sweet memories you had with him give you comfort in the days to come. I'm sure there was a "big ole reunion" in Heaven when he got home, with those that had gone on before him. I love y'all, GiJo!

I worked with Jim at Whitten Center on the licensing team for years. He was one of my closest friends there and I will miss him. He occasionally called me and we 'caught up' on things that had been going on in our lives. My thoughts and prayers are with Muriel, their children, grandchildren and other family members. Jim,his sense of humor, and his honestly will certainly be missed.
