I knew Jim (and his Wife), and spoke with them many times. I last talked 
to his wife a couple of years ago when Jim could no longer come to the 
phone. Although I haven't heard form either of them in awhile, I'm 
somewhat surprised that Jim lasted this long.

R.I.P. my friend. You deserve a long rest after your struggle.

And yes, Jim Lindner is currently a very busy man. However, he will be 
back as soon as he has time.
