My condolences to Ron and the family...this is second time this year I've been shocked by the passing of a former co-worker and friend...Both I'd worked with for many, many years...Hadn't seen Jim in quite a while, but heard he was doing ok...We had many "memorable" moments working at Bay State, didn't we "Coco"?...Some I'll never forget....R.I.P. old buddy!

My condolences to the Lesco family. Jim and I went to school together. The last time I saw him was about 4 years ago when I bumped into him at The Salavation Army store in Whitinsville and we chatted for nearly an hour. RIP, Jim...you were a good man and friend!

Adam, I love that photo of your dad Jim with his turtle! Knowing Jim, you are very lucky that you didn't have to learn how to make turtle soup! He was the best and you are the best of him! His leaving us left a big hole in many lives, and we are just going to have to remember his love of life and happy spirit and try to live the way that he would... with dignity, honor and high spirited good humor! Jim was a good man and he will be sorely missed... Hugs and love to you Adam, and all that loved James Lesco...
