I was able to send Jim this thank you a few days before his passing:

You should know that there are a handful of people in my life that are responsible for who I am personally and professionally.

Certainly my parents are at the top of the list. You sir, are among the few others that I credit for preparing me for my professional life. I learned an attention to detail and an ability to see the big picture. This vision or strategic thinking has shaped our court for the last 20 years. I learned how to think big and how to maneuver in order to get things done. These skills were taught to me by you.

Personally, I learned the importance of loyalty and doing the right thing even if those things mean risking all and going it alone. That type of character is rare. Thank you.

All we can ask for is a life well lived. You have succeeded. I hope you are at peace and can find comfort in the days ahead. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

Your friend,

I looked up to you. I'll miss you. -Cory
