    I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s death. I had been trying to get in touch with him for several years now… my children and I have wonderful memories of visiting him in Seattle for my 40th birthday, when the twins were 6; they are now 19, but have not forgotten him.

    I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s death. He was a good friend in our years together at UVa – a charming, fascinating man, and I miss him.

    Judge and Mrs. Farmer,
    I am so saddened to hear of Sebrell’s passing. I know that you loved him so much and I also know he loved you. I will never forget the countless Wednesday evenings we had when he was in Seattle having dinner and watching Star Trek. I will also never forget his friendship and the love he gave to all who knew him. I will send you some photo memories I have of your beautiful son.

    I’m so sad to learn of Jimbo’s death. He was quite a delight in my life and my family’s, as well as all our mutual friends. Thinking of him brings a smile and some times even giggles about all our adventures–good gosh–30 some years ago. Sebrell, I hope you have found peace.
