    Just got the news that “Dr. Jim” has joined the angels. He was a dear friend of my Air Force parents Joe and Betty Gwiazdon, and our entire family. We have so many memories of his visits, his witty humor and infectious laugh! And lots of martinis!! The entire Gwiazdon family sends condolences to all his family. God Speed Dr. Jim.
