    Dear Family,
    I had the pleasure of working with Jim here at Woolrich. I was just early into my career when he joined the company. We worked closely together on many projects. I looked up to him as a mentor. He was one of the first executives hired from outside the area. I am sorry for your loss. He was a true gentleman.
