Prayers and Blessings to Ruth and all the family on this sad occasion. I fondly remember working with Jim for many years on behalf of dairy farmers. His steady hand, integrity and charming wit saw us thru many challenges. I will never forgive him however for convincing David Jones and I to play Santa and The Elf at a board Christmas party. Love to the family.
