Miss Lucille, Tommy, and family,
What a man and blessing Mr. Jim was! Just a wonderful husband, father, and friend. I know he touched everyone he met with his wit and charm. The many road trips we took for basketball are legendary and I'll cherish his wisdom forever. God has him now and I'm a little jealous. May God be with you in your grieving.

My prayers are with the Taylor at this very special time. Mr. Jim was a very special person. To me he was the "Holy Cross Man". There was never a time that he did not say hello to me at a game. Along with Mr. Heller and Mr. Preau, they were Holy Cross. They were the three pillars of the TIGERS. Mr. Jim even made me have a beer with them after a big game. I have so many good memories about him.
