When I started work at BF I worked side by side with Jim. As I moved through the management lines, Jim worked my area.
What a wonderful friend and employee he was! This country needs a world a world full of Jim Reimschisels'. What a great place it would be!
A man of his dignity will certainly be missed!
My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
