I am so sorry for your loss. Bob Sievers reached out to me and Sean Acuna... Jim and I worked at CHEP together. He trained me, and we had some good conversations about our families back when he was working here. We tried to stay in touch... I wanted you to know that no trip ever went by without him talking about his girls and how he loved being home with you all. He was a good friend to me and took me under his wing, and he didn't have to. He had me in stitches pretty much all the time. I really missed him when he left CHEP, but I was so glad he was able to be home more. May God Bless you and the girls during this difficult time.

Jim-I am not sure where to start so I will probably ramble! I will miss you so much man. I loved you like a brother and we remained such very good friends from the day you first introduced yourself to me at work way back in 1997 at Precision. A lot has changed for us both since then but not even the distance between us could separate our friendship. I talked to you I swear almost every week for 23 years but I was not prepared for this my friend. I went through this with my dad when he passed. I will soon pick up the phone to call and share something with you and I will come to realize you are gone and this will all hit me again many times over as I know it will everyone else you were close too. You were there for me when I needed you most and were such a true and loyal friend through it all. The last time I got to see you was at Sam and Derek's graduation last summer and I am so glad I go to see you then. We have so many memories I will cherish many of which I can't share but I will always cherish them my friend. I will always remember how you would laugh so loud and how you could go from laughing hysterically to dead serious way quicker than I could. Jim you were one of the best friends I will ever have and I know you know that because I thank god I got to tell you that. Thank you for always being such a good and trusting and loyal friend. May god look after you now and your family. I told Tracy I would help her in any way I could and I meant it. I will miss you my friend. Good bye for now. I love you man! I will see you again one day!!! Bruce Albright
