As I said, I don't recall exactly when I learned of Jim's death, but I do remember that when I learned of it, a feeling of profound loss and sadness came over me. I was a kid. I had never met Jim. I had never seen him in person. I don't believe I had ever even seen him on television; I had only heard him sing. And yet it was terribly sad to me that this man, for whom I had so much admiration was gone. And it is strange that I still have that same sense of loss. It has never left me, even after these many years.
