    Jim, you will be greatly missed. I think you missed your calling as a teacher. I learned so much from you. From your many travels, about shells, cultures, prehistoric artifacts, and all I learned from you at the State office. Now you can travel in the blink of an eye, anywhere you want to go and see anything you want. We love you and miss you!! Annette Green and Family.
