    Jim had such a wonderful spirit and had an amazing effect on all the men at Folkston. I was privileged to spend many hours with Jim while I was there. We started a music program for the inmates together and a guitar teaching class. We enjoyed many hours of conversation and many laughs together. He was an amazing and giving man always there for all who needed his help. Never one to judge but always seeing the good in everyone and doing his best to bring that out.
    Thank you for your help and friendship – Randy
