Jim’s Death

The word of Jim’s death spread around town this morning. I heard comments such as, “From the time we are born we know this day is coming.” There is a pall around town.

Jim’s function was to occupy the “fish bowl” at the Cornucopia. He was usually in the Cornucopia to order his favorite dessert. He was noted for the many desserts he would consume in a single sitting.

The second to last time that Jim had a medical occurrence was around Tax Day. He called Patty, to have her file an extension for him. She doesn’t even file these forms for herself, but she filed them for him.

Yesterday there was a conversation, about whether Jim was devoid of friends, or whether the Cornucopia was his Cheers: “Where Everybody Knows Your Name.”
