We met Jim almost 20 years ago in the southern tier when we bought some land next to his cabin. We looked forward to seeing Jim and his family each hunting season and he was able to see our boys grow into hunters them selves. He celebrated our youngest son's first deer with us and was a great teller of stories. You will be greatly missed on the hill James. May you rest in Peace. All our thoughts, prayers and love. The Sacco Family: Joe, Chantelle, Nicholas and Christopher.
