    I was shocked to see Jim’s name in the obituaries. I am sorry for the family’s loss. I worked with Jim on numerous occasions doing sprinkler systems and fire alarms. There was never a dull moment when you were around Jim, a pretty happy go lucky guy, quite a character. He will surely be missed by many. I pray for the Highsmith family, may God help you through this period of grief.
