Happy Birthday Jim, 80 Years Young

This happy smiling wonderful man is Jim!

Happy Birthday Jim!!

Jim is my nephew's grandfather. 

Jim is a deeply passionate, caring, intelligent man. 

Jim was a rock to Carol during some rough emotional times.

Jim wrote me once something  I have NEVER forgotten:

"Consider yourself sufficiently hugged."

It was one of the nicest things anyone ever said to me, I have borrowed it a time or two to share with others who need a long distant hug, when I could not be there in person to do so.


Have a great party!  Love from Carol and her Man!

Jim takes good care of himself, too.

If that's a current photo, he looks a good 20 years younger.

Happy birthday to your friend!

There should be more people like Jim. Wouldn't the world be a wonderful place! Thanks for sharing, Carol.
