A Special Good-Bye

Last month we unexpectedly lost a team member and friend. Jim Osborne was a close friend, hard worker, always willing to help, and a technician that many customers requested by name. His work ethic, friendly personality and can do attitude were contagious. Jim loved live music, guitars, his Yamaha cruiser, and spending his free time with his son Derek and his granddaughter Sophie. Jim will be greatly missed, but the impact he had on us will not be forgotten. Our thoughts go out to his family during this difficult time.
