I received a call from Skip Wilcox yesterday concerning Jim's passing to the "Great Resort" in the sky. I hesitate to write much because truly I did not know him well. I do remember rushing over to MacDonald's Resort back in the summer of 2005 because I was told there would be a job opening to clean the cabins. Not until years later did I realize I had spoken to Jim, who I thought was simply the maintenance man. Jim referred me to Gary and I was told gently that they preferred to employ family!
I do know that at this time there will be no Memorial Service for Jim.
Jim was just honored by The Chamber as Individual of the year at the last meeting.
The MacDonald Family is a jewel in this treasure we call Bayview, Jim the dazzling diamond in the rough!
Jim will be missed.
