  9. I hope that you will be comforted in knowing how well Jim was regarded by those of us with whom he worked. I have fond memories of our time together as colleagues at Gulf Canada and can clearly recall his competence, professionalism and sense of humour. Jim’s courage in facing his kidney ailment was an inspiration.

    -his winter gloves that made a sharp clapping sound whenever Chris or his team did something well!
    -that big gorgeous grin!
    -his concern for the folks around him and his willingness to help whenever he could!
    -his fabulous organizational abilities and how he made it all look easy!
