Default Papajim. 1 year on 11/22/2011

I just wanted to take the time to remember a great member. Jim passed on 11/22/10.

RIP PAPAJIM. We love and miss you brother.

If everyone would change their avatar to the picture posted here I think it would be a great tribute to a member who was loved and will be missed greatly.



Also the threads have been merged so MMBTVS's contest(post #40) is in this thread as well. Please feel free to say something you remember about Jim and comments for his contest thread as well.

Hard to believe that we are coming up on one year. Papajim had the best timing of anyone I have ever seen on these boards. Here is a Pot of Coffee for you Papa Jim

Always enjoyed talking to PapaJim. His stories whenever there was an earthquake in California were always humorous.

Can't believe it's really been a year. Great guy, and he has been missed dearly.

We should all fly the Avatar of PapaJim (sketch of papajim) I am currently sporting over there <<<<< on his 1 year anniversary. How cool would it be to see every avatar be papajim?

I'd be down with it. I think my kid scratching his butt avatar could use a bit of a break

Only a few days away. It would be great to see everyone use this avatar for the day. Copy the pic in the original post and use it for your avatar on 11/22.

Thank you

I did not know him, but clearly was a good person based on response.

I wasn't going to switch my avatar (only because I did not know him) but what you guys are doing is great.

To you papajim!
