    I worked in the assisted living center where Jim lived. He was by far my favorite resident. We would drink coffee together and talk every day. He would make up jokes or tell us stories. He was always smiling and always made the people around him happy. He enjoyed when I would bring my children in for a visit and was like a grandpa to me.
    I was very saddened when I heard of his passing and wish I had gotten to visit one more time.
    The world will be a little dimmer without his dimple smile.
    Sorry for your loss.
