Jim and I attended Stonehill at the same time. His career in high school guidance an d mine in college admissions allowed us to be connected his entire professional life. He cared about his students and he knew how to counsel those in need of a soft approach and those in need of a heavy hand.

I am in shock. Jim and I worked at Nauset together. I was his school secretary Can't believe he's gone. Always the storyteller. My two boys played basketball at Nauset so he always had a story to tell. Sorry to his family, they have endured so much. Peace
