I am so sad to hear this. Jim and I were such good friends in school and after. He enjoyed my husband and we had many good times after graduation. I only learned he was at Jennie B last week and wrote to him hoping he could call me but unfortunately I was too late. Prayers for him and his friends and family. Bonnie Joslin O’Brien.

I'm so sorry to hear. When Jim owned the Southside he made the best cabbage patch soup.
