He always pushed the envelope to promote pharmacists and what they could do. He was passionate about Auburn, the School of Pharmacy and about clinical research. Jim was also a friend and will be missed, but we should all take solace in the fact that Jim contributed to the profession and to people's lives in a meaningful a way."
