Always had a smile on his face.
Even though I didn't visit his store that often, he always remembered my name when he saw me.
Happy trails...Jim.

Thank you,Doc,
for calling me in the morning.Was on the way again.
He had a surgery a couple of days before.Kidneys don't work.
A couple of weeks before his liver failed.
Of course he drunk too much.Who not?
He and Gaeo was a nice team at working.
3 days before he looked in a very bad condition.
A last handshake with him.
Tuesday Gaeo told me he comming up,so I hoped he was over the moon.

Jimmy was one of the nicest guy's here around.Always friendly,funny.
We're making business lomg time together.Becomming friends,respecting each other.Always straight and fair.
His live was too short.Gaeo has now a hard job to survive.Building up this business in Lao,they starting together.Having the old in Nongkai,with all the normally problems.
Hopefully she will be strong.
Nobi :( :( :(

Now there's a co-incidence. We had our friend Jim Kelly pass away in Udon just on a year ago, similar causes? He was a hard player also but didn't quite make it to hospital.

RIP Jim Kellie and Jim Kelly
