    I was asked by my father, forum moderator jimbo (James), to notify you upon his passing on June 12, 2013 after a 13 month battle with pancreatic cancer.

    Hi Patti,
    I just found this in my message box. I had noticed that Jimbo hadn't been posting. I knew he was going through treatment, and that his email address here was no longer working.
    I'm so glad I found this note, yet so sad that he won't be here with us. He was always solid in so many ways. His calm and clear advice was always good.
    In a world of confusion at times, he was like a bell ringing in the night. He would bring us around with his sage advice.

    I notice that Jimbo was user 8
    There are now 370,040 members. He was an original.

    Sorry that you have to bring bad news.

    I wondered why jimbo was not posting.

    He was a big help for the forum. He knew his shit.


    He is in a better place than You or I.


    RIP Big Jim...
