A fine thing to do, David. COMMON has long had a Volunteer Memorial
Scholarship, which is contributed at each conference in the name of a
deceased volunteer. I just sent an email to Michelle August, the
Foundation's executive director, that the 2015 VMS be named in Jim's honor.
I remember Jim volunteering many times when I was an APM and board member.
He was always a pleasure to know.

I'm riding a metric century (100 km / 62 miles) in the 2015 American
Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure to raise money for diabetes research,
education, advocacy, and awareness. You can make a tax deductible donation
to my ride by visiting http://email.diabetessucks.net
. My goal is $5500 but
any amount is appreciated.
See where I get my donations from ... visit
for an interactive map (it's
a geeky thing).
