On Monday our family tragically lost Grandpa Jim. I'll miss him terribly. He and Theo had a really sweet relationship. It always made Grandpa's day when Theo went over and gave him a kiss. He would smile and say, "what a guy!"
Joe always turned to Jim when he needed a true Mets conversation (I'm learning, but I can't do the job required yet). Jim knew every player, and every stat, from every year (going back decades). He never ceased to amaze me!
The best thing about Jim, though, was that he had a joke for everything. He could always be counted on for a laugh.
Grandpa Jim, we love you and we'll miss you.
