Consider it a new rally prop!

Sad news

Received a message of sad news from fellow airstreamer' Kontki this afternoon:

"Just after last year's rally at Casini, we found out Jim's cancer had returned. He received palliative chemo treatments for about a year. He passed away on May 27 under Hospice care. He fought courageously for 3 years but he knew it get him in the end.
We enjoyed our time with all of you. I hope to visit when you are at Jackson Rancheria in Oct.
Fondly, Ginny"

Ginny, so very sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Jim was so very kind and full of life. A courageous man that lived for the moment. We enjoyed our time with him. We look forward to seeing you at the Jackson rally this fall.
Jeff, Kathy & Collin

Very, very sad news about Jim. It's been a sad, tough week for me. We had sophomore at school tragically take his life, my dog Deakin had a stroke and we have to put him to sleep, and now the news that a fellow Norcal rallier has past away. Feeling blue. My thoughts go out to Ginny. RIP Jim.

Personally, we are just crushed - crushed. Jim was the gentlest and kindest person in the world. This news hits home real hard......
I enjoyed the limited time I was able to have with him. But all the same will miss him greatly... just can't believe it.

A Great Loss

We received the same message from Ginny. We're saddened to learn of Jim's death. He and Ginny were always so kind to us and made us feel so welcome and we always looked forward to seeing them at the rallies. Jim's presence will be sorely missed.

He always had a ready smile, a warm hug and thumbs up for us. We're happy to have called him a friend.

We received the same message from Ginny and immediately sent her our reply of sadness and encouragement to visit us at JRRV in October. I will remember Jim's glowing smile at me when we first saw him after his surgery that took his voice box. Because of my hearing loss I can lip read pretty good. He smiled when he realized this and more so when he turned to Ginny and 'mouthed' that he wanted to return to their Airstream. Ginny didn't understand so I told her, "Jim wants to go back to the trailer." Jim lit up at me with a thumbs up. Yes, Jim, had a great positive attitude.....he's one human gem that will be missed, but never forgotten.

Jim's passing

Elle & I would also like to echo the sentiments posted by others that had the pleasure to get to know Jim through our group. He always took the time to welcome us and we'll remember him fondly.

Thank you all for your kind words and expressing your memories of Jim. I was not expecting the message of his passing to appear on this thread, but since it has, I want to express my appreciation for all of your friendships and I will be forever grateful for the kindness and fun we have shared at the NorCal rallies.
Fondly, Ginny
