Before we had a car, we went to the library every few days. We went to storytime with Grandpa Ed, we made Librarian Jim search the shelves for our odd requests. We knew what was happening in our ‘hood.

The funeral was a week ago, the librarian tells me. How was that not on my radar? Apparently Jim got sick very quickly, metastisis happened even more quickly and then he was gone. My heart goes out to him, his co-workers, his family and to all at the library who knew and loved him.

Get that library in order up in the Great Beyond, Librarian Jim. If anyone can do it, you can!

When you drive a car, you don’t pay attention as well. He was a man that deserved to be noticed.
