Uncle Jim was the best uncle ever. I remember him taking me on my first roller coaster ride at Great America. I also remember him driving up the on ramp backwards so that we wouldn't have to wait in line to get into Great America. He knew a back entrance. I thought and always will think, he was the coolest. He was always there for us. There is definitely a hole in our lives without him. Love to everyone. Leigh
