Jim Buckley

Jim was an exceptional person whose life was full of examples to live each day to the fullest. I believe he was a person driven by his own internal compass. That compass helped him be an engaging brother still missed by all to this day. Jim was a cross country runner which transformed him into a marathon athlete with qualifying times for the Boston Marathon. Everyone watched as he met his condition head on with inner strength and courage. His Never Give Up attitude endures to this day. Jim's life was cut short by ALS but his spirit lives on.
