Last Summer, when more money
was cut from the alcohol treatment budget, Patty Fay Hickox and
I ask Jim to lunch at the hospital cafertia to talk to him about
this issue. He listened to us, and said he had been on the foundation
that started KAR House and he would do all he could to help us
keep the doors open. He gave us both instructions as to what
we needed to do as well. We both wished him luck on his election.
Well, that didn't happen, God had other plans for him, he was
given more time to with his family, friends and the town he loved.
He will be missed, "a believer in people and the things
they could accomplish" Thanks Jim for your caring and kind
heart and for the respect we shared as "we agreed to disagree."
