From: Al Patterson
Relation: Friend and Teammate

So sorry Audrey to hear about Jim’s passing. As you know, both of you were Kimberleyites that I interacted with all the time while I lived there. I have fond memories of those Hobo- Dynamo days at the ballpark!!! I know that he will be at peace but I am sure you and your families will miss the heck out of him. It will not be easy for you to get over this but if you can remember the good times, you will have a smile on your face almost all day long. And when the wind blows over the Kimberley ballpark I am sure, if we listen carefully, Putter will be hollering down- Hobo! Hobo! Hobo!
