    Rog let me know of Big Jim’s passing.
    What a good long life he had!
    I remember your dad as a personality with the most unique yin-yang combination of anyone I’ve ever met.
    Who else could spit like a sailor while spinning one of his famous yarns, and later run off to go singing like a choirboy with his pals. Who else could pick up a whole house with his bare hands (ok not quite) in the morning and lovingly take his kids out for a little boat ride on the river in the afternoon. Just thinking about his grand quirkiness, which I hope he has passed down to each of you, makes me smile. 🙂
    Love to you all
