This is the man who taught me never to judge a human by his cover. I will miss him. I will smile at the memory of our animated debates and conspiracy theories and the way we tossed ironies back and forth. I will remember the twinkle in his eye, the blatant tell that he was only playing at provocateur. And I will never forget the love and pride pouring from him whenever he gazed on his son. I am sorry this life was so hard for you, Jim. We will be there for your beloveds. Rest in peace.
