Years earlier, Jim had me to record interviews of his parents, aunts and uncles as a part of a legacy preservation project. Some who by this time have passed. Jim knew people died, but their words didn't have to.
We would spend a beautiful South Dakota morning on Jim's deck. Jim musing (he was good at that) and me listening (it goes with musing, like ying and yang).
Jim spoke seriously, but always with a little twinkle in his eye and wit in his words. He had some important things he wanted to share...his way.
Ultimately, the doctors were right. It was about two years when Jim passed, but not his words. Jim made sure of that.
