Ah shit... I feel like I‘m gonna puke!

Obviously didn’t know him beyond what he posted here, but felt I “knew” him a bit through this forum! Also knew his end was coming soon based on his post about hospice care, but not THIS SOON!!! Dammit... RIP “JALLEN”.

When I remember JAllen, I think of him as a great teacher. Here was a man, who knew he would soon pass on, who took the time to mail in his ballot in case he didn't make it to election day. I keep thinking about this, and frankly it really touches my heart how faithful he was to the ideas and principles of our Country.

What an amazing example. He has now been in Heaven four days, and I am still learning from him.


You know what else he did with the last few grains in his hour glass? He spent it with us and for us. He behaved selflessly to the end that way. That is what I came to admire about him. I hope he knew/knows how grateful I am to him for that example.



I'm sorry, I'm thinking about the cats again...

I saw this today, Tuesday morning, before dawn leaving for work. I was just busy with life and hadn't checked in all weekend and then some. Like others have said, I felt I knew him, and wanted to meet him at some point, though I knew it was unlikely. So many of the posts here express so much better than I can the depth of Jim's impact on all of us. For me, just his clarity of thought and intellect made his thoughts and opinions (on just about anything) genuinely pleasurable to read. His humor, wisdom, experiences, insightful opinions, even his ethos. It was like crack to me. Clearly it was for others too.

I too am glad he is finally pain free. There is also a joy in knowing of a good, full life, so thoroughly lived. Still, I was far more affected by this news than I previously thought possible.

Jim, you will be sorely missed sir. May God bless you and keep you.
I am very glad to have had the chance to benefit from your presence.

Damn....I just got back from a work trip and I get a notice that I hadn't turned-in my rent, walk in the door and there it is on the counter, my rent check that I had forgotten to turn-in before leaving last week. Now, I log-in to this great community and see this news. One of the wise and great members of this forum has passed. I very much appreciated JAllen's perspective and professional opinion on various subjects. He will be missed and we are diminished. Frown

I always appreciated his intellect and willingness to share what he was so passionate about. He stood out and was extra-ordinary extraordinary. Prayers of comfort for his family and friends.

May he rest in peace. He was one of the reasons I'm addicted to (mostly lurking) on this great forum.

My condolences to JALLEN's family.

Although we never met, I was always proud to have him as a neighbor in the hill country.

The man went out with his boots on and his dignity well in tact. Fair winds and following seas to a class act.
