I knew Jim first as a teacher at the M.F.D.H.S. where i knew him as a "good kid". From time to time I would meet him as an adult realized that my earlier judgement was correct. The last time I saw Jim was after we had moved to Guelph where i met him in a Zehr's store and we had a very pleasant talk. I am really sorry to read of his death.We don't need to lose the good ones so young. Sincerely, Douglas Leiper M.F.D.H.S. 1961-1989
