If anyone from the DFW area is planning on going please let me know. I'm going to see if I can attend.
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

I would attend if I wasn’t headed to Utah for a wedding that day.

I don't really know which he would prefer of those charities, but Jim was a loyal and lifelong supporter of the UT Longhorn Band. That's my pick.
The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.

This was my thought as well. He posted often and with great pride about it.

I know it might not be in good taste to mention what an impact he had on the SigForum in his obituary. But he certainly was a fixture here, and I know many of us will miss his posts very much. I corresponded with him a little, and I highly suspect he's in Heaven now. Their gain is our loss.

Nice picture. He looked like quite the distinguished gentleman. RIP.
A Memorial Service usually denotes immediate cremation or immediate burial. They could have used a cremation society for this in lieu of a funeral home.
I never knew What Jim looked like, but from his postings, this sure fits what I imagined.
I am ready to "Make America Great Again."
That is my pick. Last time I visited him he spoke a lot about how proud he was to participate in the alumni band until he was no longer able to do so and that is something that bothered him about his disease. I am still frustrated that I will not be able to attend his services as I will be out of state that day for a wedding; otherwise I would ensure I was there.

Thanks for posting the obit. Just one of the people we are so damn lucky to have shared their time with on this little internet oasis. I will miss him greatly.

I had never seen him before but his picture fit the image I had of him in my head.
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them." Thomas Jefferson
"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good men have insurance." JALLEN
I was just thinking that exact same thing.
A note from Martine Cardin-Allen regarding flowers, etc.
Thanks to spinzone and cheese grits for posting the obituary.
“Little else is requisite to carry a state to the highest degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism but peace, easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice: all the rest being brought about by the natural course of things.”--Adam Smith, born June 16, 1723
So that we don't overwhelm the family with multiple flowers or communications. My suggestion is to get one arrangement of flowers, one note to be read, and gifts to the Longhorn scholarship fund in his name.
In the note, we can state the obvious to us: Jim's impact on many people throughout the world via sigforum. That he was a kind, level headed man who discussed complex issues at length and with great detail over many years. That he will be sorely missed by his online aquantances and friends alike. In honor of Jim, several are making contributions to the Longhorn Band Scholarship fund.
Here is a link to the UT alumni Band's donations page
And just in case it is useful:
To establish a named scholarship, contact the Board of Trustees and begin with an initial donation of at least $5,000.00. After total contributions reach $30,000.00, a named scholarship can then be awarded to a member of the Longhorn Band.

. Correct me if I’m wrong but I vaguely remember Jim referring to Wilford Brimely as having a strong resemblance to him.

And he's still making me laugh. God I am going to miss him.
