    I am a co-worker of Jim, not sure who will be able to fill his shoes on helping me with my invoice issues. He was always ready to help me whenever I reached out to him. We have had many conversations on all kinds of topics, and this is something that I will dearly miss. Deepest sympathy to the family.
