This is terrible news. My condolences and prayers go out to Jim's family and his extended family at Mt. Holly. I have been performing the duties of snow measuring for ABE for the past decade and Jim took such an active part in improving the program. He ALWAYS was there to answer any questions and any emails I sent him. In fact, he usually took the time to call me instead of replying on email. That personal touch will be lost. He seems so excited in the advances in the program and truly seemed to be a caring person. On a couple of occasions, when I posted something on facebook about health concerns about my daughter, he CALLED me just to see how she was doing. Although I only met Jim a few times at the office and for a site visit here in Allentown, I feel I knew him better than I should have. And that was because of Jim's caring and warm personality. You will be missed Jim!
