Jim and I went way back to First Communion at St. Francis de Sales.  I remember our common interest in science and the fun we had in physics class with Mr. Steinberger.

I cannot say how we met. Perhaps while working as lab assistants for Mr. Ashcraft or maybe as co-caretakers for the Kestrel that hit one of the building during a storm and was brought to Biology in a dazed condition. Over the next few years I was Igor the lab assistant to Jim's Mad Scientist. After graduation we stayed in touch and Jim invited Barb and I up to Lake Erie for a weekend on his Columbia sailboat. There are a lot of stories/memories I have from my friendship with Jim to long to scribble down here.
