On the day Before Christmas I was told of the passing of Jim, KG4YLZ. Jim was one of those people you just enjoyed seeing and talking with. He never had anything bad to say about anyone, and he always seemed genuinely interested in what you were up to in the Hobby.

Jim was an active CW OP. I remember him talking of the fun he had in the CW Fox Hunts. He introduced me to the Palm Mini Paddle for CW, which I found so unique that I had to get one for my Mobile/portable operating.

Just wanted to pass along my final 73. Rest in peace Jim. We will all miss you.
