Messages of Condolence
Sinerest condolences Marla to you and your family. May God comfort your hearts in this time of sorrow.
I taught with Jim at PSH from 1960-1985. I was always impressed with his dedication. Although I taught science, I did get a chance to teach a few math classes. Many times I went to Jim for suggestions in teaching a certain concept. Thanks Jim. Looking back on those years I now realize that the math and science teachers at Parma High were some of the best that I worked with when compared to the other two schools where I taught. Jim was right on the top rung of our staff.
