    John,
    Make sure you post this in the 'Studebaker Passings' forum.
    That's where it needs to be.

                Terrible, shocking news [V][V]

                Good guy, helped me get a bunch of stuff together for my Lark... had a good time dickering with him on stuff, especially at Reedsville... in the end, he made me a good deal...

                He was in the process of getting stuff together for my Provincial...

                Just proves what I always say: none of us EVER know hown long we've got! Put everything you've got into the people and things you love and enjoy life like it's your last day... 'cause it just might be!!

                God speed, Jim- and God Bless Deb and family.

                        Given Jim's long association with Studebakers,I wonder if it might be appropriate to bring out some Studebakers for Jim's funeral on Sunday.

                        I don't know about anyone else, but when my time comes, I would like to think that there would be some Studebakers in the funeral procession.

                        What do you think?
