Just saw it elsewhere.

Get hard and dig, Jim. And make the nurses giggle.

I read friends and calls aren’t wanted right now, but if we can get a room number for cards, down the road, I’d appreciate it.

Jim likes Marlboro lights and Johnny Walker.

I say we threaten to get a go fund me set up for Paris and Mylie to welcome him home.

I have to see if I can dig up some Playboys from the late 60's.

Good news to hear he is conscious.

Just returned from a vacation in DomRep and didn't hear about this until yesterday.

Jim, you have always been there for me and I wish you all the best. Start sitting up and taking nourishment, especially liquid refreshment!

Prayers out from here.

God Bless You Jim!

Concure. If we can’t get them maybe we can get Cliv to send his hot German wife over there for a few hours.

Get your strength back Jim, hydrate and eat. Great news to hear you’re back among the conscious Ranger.

Jim passed away and crossed over to the other side, early this morning at his home.

He loved this board and enjoyed the process in helping pass on the Ranger legacy to all those who aspire to one day become a Ranger.

I don't normally do whiskey, but I will suck a shot (or 2) down later on, in your honor.

Friend, mentor, teacher and one bad ass gentleman.

You will be missed my friend.

Rest easy Jim.

Got a bottle of Buffalo Trace Eagle Rare the other day... It ain't that fancy but seems quite appropriate.

Here's to Jim.
