    I work for Elite Medical Transport and I was one of Jim’s drivers. We talked about many things. He battled cancer with all he had and told me he was a winner either way. Jim was always in a good mood even on the days when he was in great pain. I will miss Jim in a mighty way. I prayed for him and his family every day. May God be with you all in the days and months to come.
