    Our hearts go out to Jim and the family at this very sad time. Please dwell on the good and happy times and draw your memories from these. A piece of a poem by Earnest Dowson is worth repeating:
    “They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
    out of a misty dream;
    Our path emerges for a while, then closes:
    Within a dream”.
