Dear Carol and family, Dad and I are so sorry to read about Jim. Even after all of these years, whenever I am in a particularly good, or bad, parking lot, I think about Jim's work and figure that he could have done a better job at the design! Our thoughts are with you all. Dena Jackson and Bill Jackson
