    Everyone loved Mo! He was so friendly and funny to me and all my friends that visited Jim in the Keys. He taught us about preparing bait, making yum-yum mix, and catching fish. My friends referred to Jim as the “Salt of the Earth”, meaning he was earnest, honest, and down to earth. He will be missed. Fish on!!!

    The first time I saw Uncle Jim I was about 7 years old and he was sleeping on the floor at Grandma Mayme’s house and I thought to myself what a handsome man. I was like wow! He looked like the bottom photo. I love you Uncle Jim! You will be forever missed!
