Very sad. I enjoyed his reviews.

My sympathies to the family for losing both.

Terrible news! Rest in peace, Jim. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Angela. Hopefully she will recover.

Agree totally with the above. Prayers for the family. Tragic.

Wow, I'm confused. Did Jim's wife also pass away?  :(

Unfortunately it appears so. Look at the last post in the Facebook screenshot in Reply #10 in this thread.
