Jim was so loving, so caring and generous with his time and resources.

There is so much to be said for the wonderful example he always will be to me and my family. Jim was an Honorary Member of our family. However, the Honor was entirely ours.

Our family and friendship goes back multiple generations. We called Jim "Uncle or Cousin Jim". Just seemed comfortable for all of us, including Jim. His friendship with my Grandfather (Mike Bork) was so special.

So many stories... I will share only one (sort of funny). Jim was home recovering from that terrible car accident. My wife (Sheryl) and I went to visit. He could see that I was struggling with back pain that Friday evening. He said "Bork, you should go to the resistance pool with me". I said "Jim, I am not going to the pool with you".

He was so concerned about my pain (while he was not doubt, in worse pain). He insisted that I go and asked me why I would not. Jokingly, I explained... "I am not sure I want to see you in trunks!" Jim laughed. Then, I said "plus,I don't think I could keep up with you!" He laughed loudly and said "I will see you at 10:00 at the resistance pool. We arrived (my wife Sheryl along to watch). He showed up with Janice and Max! It was amazing to watch him meet and greet all of those in the pool. He was the "Mayor" long after leaving the official office. And, he was famous for keeping an incredible schedule of "appearances". Always remembering names and people's circumstances. He was the one who called me to provide the encourageement and strength to speak at my Mother's funeral. He told me "this is a moment when you must speak". Of course, he was fearless about public speaking (especially about his passion for St. Jude's Kids).

He will be missed so much by so many. We must emulate his behavior to honor his memory for years to come. I hope we all can keep up the pace he set. That will be a worthy challenge.
