MaryBeth, Brad & Family, on behalf of my siblings I send condolences to you. All 4 of us Harrod kids had Jim for a band teacher and Teresa, the oldest also had him for World History. She maintains that he is the best teacher she ever had. He made her really think. Kathy, the second oldest said she always felt that Jim believed in her. I was about 6 when he came to teach at Harrod and he came to our house for dinner. He called me Prune Juice! Then, years later, he was my beginning band teacher at Allen East. Several years ago, Kathy & I were able to pay a visit to MaryBeth & Jim to catch up on each other's lives after decades apart. It was lovely. We greatly appreciated that Jim came to see us at the visitation after our mom passed in 2019. Our lives were just a few of the hundreds Jim influenced, making for a life well lived. God bless you!

Marybeth, Brad & family, We are very thankful for our more recent Ohio visits when Jim was doing well & we could talk about the adventures we all had with him & my parents. Jim was the younger brother Dad never had & the older brother I never had! Love to all of you!
