The two things I remember well about Jim. In 1961 we were working on the Freshman Class home coming float. Jim came driving up and Chris Bonfoey was with him. My thoughts were why do the upper class men have to date the cute girls of our class. The second was Jan of 69, I was going up north main street and a cute gal was walking on the sidewalk wearing a mini skirt. I was watching her and thinking how cold her legs must be. When I turned back to look ahead all I saw were big red brake lights. Yes I rear ended the car. Jim was back from the service and was a TR police officer for a while. I explained about seeing the gal in the mini skirt we chuckled and then he gave me a ticket. I have known the Wheat family for decades. I wish you all peace during this time of sadness. David
