I had the pleasure of working with Jim many years. I was a foreman with Chemung County and had a working relationship with both him and Fred Roberts. May the Blitz family find comfort in the Lord. We as humans mourn our loss, but as children of God we can rejoice his eternal life with his Lord. May God bless you all.
