I have fond memories of visiting Uncle James and Aunt Betty during summer break when I was a kid. Those weekend days on their boat were wonderful and cemented my love of the water. After Aunt Betty passed I spent a fair amount of time with Uncle James and got to know him in a way I never did as a kid. He told me some of the shenanigans he and his buddies were involved in when they were younger with the biggest smile on his face. He was truly a nice man and I'm grateful for the time I got to spend with him - as a kid and especially the last couple of years. You will be missed.
