I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. He was such a nice man and I enjoyed working with him at Monsanto. He will be missed by all those who were lucky enough to have known Jim.

My cousin Quent Boyle reminded me that my mother, Margaret Mary (Donahue) Boyle had Jim as a student in Lincoln Public Schools. I remember Mom speaking of what a good student Jim was and she always spoke fondly of him. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
