Jim was a gentle giant..kind, generous, a rare and true friend. I am a farmer in Jim's beloved Nobleboro and I harvested the hay he fed his deer. Spring is always a bit burdensome with all the start up costs of seed and fertilizer etc. He always offered to pay for his crop in advance and loan me whatever I needed until things got rolling and growing. I am 57 and have farmed my whole life.I have never met anyone quite like him and his beloved family. I miss him...his smile, encouraging words and support and joy of life.
