R.I.P Jim, magic111, my dear friend
Just got a text from Jerrie. He had a heart attack while running last night and never came to.

I am sad beyond words now, still in shock.

I was in San Francisco last weekend and spoke to Jim. We tried to meet up in Novato but he was exhausted from his just returned trip.

Jim rode on BRT 1 and was returning this June. :(

Jim loved sweets. Make sure you enjoy something good today. Jerrie, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss.

Jim has been an invaluable member of FT and the American AAdvantage Moderator team.

But more, Jim was a courageous and indomitable friend (and a fiendish flyer!) I last enjoyed dinner with Jim in London earlier this month, and as the inveterate traveler he was, with us living ~100 miles apart, he arrived in London via NRT and DFW, returning home via JFK to meet up with fellow mod dstan.

Many of us will miss Jim's perpetual smile and twinkle in his eyes, take-it-easy views, sometimes quirky dry humour, his referee's point of view to illuminate all positions before rendering an equitable opinion, his resilience. The Jim we knew gave of himself until there wasn't much more to give, at which point he dug and found even more to give.

His soul is free to travel unbound; may his spirit sow his joie de vivre and peace wherever he may roam.

In the history of FlyerTalk, in the history of our corps of volunteer Moderators, in the history of the unknowns behind a keyboard who become friends and in the history of those who have earned my utmost and most personal respect Jim/Magic111 is one of those that did make a difference for all those who call FlyerTalk their base station for miles, points and general travel information. The number of times I recall great conversations with Jim of reason and valuable contributions toward the success that is FlyerTalk reaches well into the double digits. His particular passion for the right thing for all the visitors to the AAdvantage forum and beyond still guides me today and will forever.

This is a man whose time clearly was cut too short. This is a member whose contributions are so imbedded in the mantra of FlyerTalk for wanting to help others, that he will always be part of the history that will be written for FlyerTalk.

We are all here for his memory today, tomorrow and for every day after. I am truly quite saddened by this news, FlyerTalk has truly lost a dear, dear friend.
