Dear Mary Lou, Chuck, Steven and families,
The news of Jim's passing has greatly saddened us. We fondly remember a man who had a wonderfully quirky sense of humor, kept a pet salamander in his basement, collected discarded beer cans and made delicious lime daiquiris. We'll hoist a couple or more of those daiquiris to his memory.
Love, Marilynn and Chuck Sterling
