He was a cousin to the lady my grandfather married when I was a kid. I had lunch with Jim in 2003 when I was thinking about moving to LA to pursue screenwriting (which I never did, thank God). The last time I saw Jim, in 2015, he wasn’t doing well. I’m kind of surprised he made it to 2021, given the struggles he was having in 2015.
