Captian Jim

Posted by on Wednesday, January 25th, 2006

I just found out that our friend Captain Jim died.  It wasn’t exactly out of the blue–Jim had a heart-defect that he’d known about all his life, and he wasn’t supposed to make it past 20.  He made it to 55.  He made Celtic summer camp a true hoot this year–his first.  I rarely meet people who entertain me so well so soon after I meet them.  He dove right into every bit of our community.  Several of our friends in Michigan had the chance to know Jim for far longer than I did, and I both envy and grieve for them now. 

Keep sailing those great lakes, Jim.  And we’ll keep singing you back to shore.
