PAPAJIM 2 years 11/22/12
 
I wanted to get this up tonight. I have to head home for a few days so I wanted to get people thinking about changing their avatars.

On 11/22/12 it will be 2 years since Jim passed. For those who did not know Jim you missed out on knowing a great, funny and caring person.

The sketch in my avatar is a sketch of Jim. Last year we had several hundred members change their avatar for the month. Some have not taken it down. Please partake in flying the papajim avatar this year to remember a great member.

2 years already! ;(

ToppsCollector1 11-03-2012 12:34 AM

Is always tragic losing someone you know. While I nev had the pleasure of meeting him since I joined in December of that year I do know what the feeling on here is like after hearing of bad news since we experienced something tragic earlier this year.

RIP papajim, these 2 years have been very different since you have moved on.

The Wonder Twins will be replaced by him without a doubt.

ChicagoCubsWS 11-03-2012 01:23 AM

Deffinatly one of the sadder times of the year. I will keep mine his.

Sqeeshy 11-03-2012 09:43 AM

I will be flying the papajim avatar. Was not around the forums when he was with us, but have heard great things about him.

frozenntimesports 11-03-2012 12:28 PM

One of the best we ever had.

It is hard to believe that it has been two years. I am sure Jim has them laughing in heaven.

houdini 11-03-2012 03:13 PM

Avatar changed for November. Great tribute.

Joined the site after his passing but read up on his other thread and seemed like a great member! RIP PAPAJIM

Papajim was the man. So many funny PMs exchanged over the years.

Miss yah Pal!!!!!!!

JosieD 11-03-2012 04:13 PM

I heard so many great things about Papa Jim. Changed to honor a fellow cancer warrior.

Definitely.

He was an unbelievable encouragement when I had my scare. One of the best and still badly missed.

One person who could always make you smile. I had some very good conversations with him. Always willing to give you advice...with a little humor put into it.

Gave me some of the best advice ever for a married man...always have an extra gift wrapped in the truck of your car for your wife, that way, you never forget any occasion:D

RIP Papa

That is pure genius! What a lucky women she was. I hope she is doing well. Has anyone maintained contact with his widow?

I tried to maintain contact with the family. The only way I had to do so was through his daughters account here. She has not responded.

Thank you everyone. Jim was just such a great guy. It's funny that none of us ever met him yet feel so strongly about him. That's who he was and that says a lot about him. I could only hope that I would have that affect on someone.

RIP Jim

RamRage 11-04-2012 12:21 PM

Changed mine to the sketch. From what I've heard he was a great guy, RIP. :(

marino5084 11-07-2012 08:49 AM

Need to see some more avatars.

BAMBAM 11-07-2012 09:02 AM

The calling out/BS threads aren't the same without him "throwing a pot of coffee on" in them. The really long battles sometimes needed "an extra pot":D RIP Bro

TrueNE_09 11-07-2012 11:20 PM

I was here during his time but never knew him. Sounds like a stand up guy.

Didn't know he fought cancer - I hate the very word to the bottom of my heart.

I'll fly his avatar out of respect for the month without hesitation.

monkeymcgee 11-07-2012 11:24 PM

My favorite post of his was when he went off on non-payers, calling it "a**hole layaway". I still think of that phrase when it comes up.

RIP to a great member

ManInTheMirror 11-08-2012 05:33 AM

Early morning bump from me in honor of Jim and in hopes to see more member's flying the avatar.

dd316 11-08-2012 10:32 AM

Avatar proudly changed. RIP Jim, I still miss ya.

gritt81 11-08-2012 12:38 PM

And done...........

KEARYCOLBERT83 11-08-2012 12:41 PM
