I just talked to Karen and she said Jim passed in the night. He made it to their 38th Anniversary and said farewell to this world. Karen is at peace, she is making arrangements for him to be buried in Sarasota Florida where her son-in-law is a pastor. I will let you know more when I know.

Karen asked me to pass to Ben et al that Jim's status had changed.
