    Jim was one of the finest persons I ever met. His dedication to the Goldblum case was an inspiration to me. He will be missed.

    I so loved my father-in-law. Maybe the largest personality I have ever known and saved my bacon several times. We sent him in to a car dealer who screwed us…..and a landlord who screwed us….and he absolutely was the right man for the job.

    I don’t have the words to express how sad this news makes me…Jim was a friend to many and he championed the continuing effort to release Zeke Goldblum…he will be missed by all those who had the good fortune to have met and interacted with him…
    I’ll keep a good thought for his family and know my life was better for having known him…

    I will forever miss Jim’s bright and cheerful smile and laugh. His great support and words of encouragement gave me strength, interest, and motivation in continuing the fight for the release of Zeke Goldblum. Jim’s long-term and sincere interest, caring, and enthusiasm was downright contagious! I am forever grateful for the kindness and inspiration he afforded me. I will sorely miss him and always remember and cherish our friendship and collaboration. My thoughts and prayers to Ginny and the family.

    We remember when our uncle Tom Short and Ramsey would shine the lites from the patrol car at our window to see if it was not to late for a Fresh cup of coffee .He was a great guy and some funny stories from them 2. RIP…

    My heart is sad today as well. I agree with my brother Chris, our Uncle Jim could make us laugh. He always seem to say what people were thinking but to afraid to say. I remember a time I was home for a visit and he invited us to his house to watch the Steelers games in his man cave. I’d forgotten how crazy Pitts-burgers get when the Steelers start to lose a game. We would laugh so hard as he screamed at the TV screen like the players could hear him. Or the time he started a food fight with his sisters, my mom and Aunt Judy during one of our Thanksgiving dinners and my grandmother yelled at them like they were teenagers. We laughed as she made them clean up their mess. Or the pizza shop and the unlimited quarters him and Aunt Ginny would give us to play the pin ball machine. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Aunt Ginny. Much love, Kevin and Tracey
