  1. I was one of Jim’s caregivers after his car accident in 2013. He used to tease that he was not a very good patient because he wasn’t very compliant, but I found him to be a delight to care for. He had a great sense of humor. Deb and Jim had a phenomenal marriage and it was fun to watch them interact. Such a loving household! Their dogs were well loved too. I’m grateful for being a part of their lives for that year. My deepest sympathy to Deb and to Jim’s children. I know he will be missed very much.
