Kay and I were so sorry to read about Jim. I was at the Club yesterday and from a distance I saw a man, my first thought was that it was Jim. Also, Kay's father was at Northeast in SA. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Take care, Danny and Kay

We were shocked and sorrowed to hear of Jim's death. We hadn't seen the Ipock's for years but have wonderful memories of playing golf with them at Green Hills Country Club. Our prayers and thoughts are with Dale and the family.
