I absolutely enjoyed taking care of Jim. He was a great person and always made my day. I'm going to miss him a lot especially, his stories about his life. He was quite an interesting person. I think I learned a lot from him.

Jim shields was one of the most remarkable men I have ever met. He lived life to the fullest and left behind an astounding rags to riches story that culminated in a strong family, many works of Philanthropy. His business successes led to prosperity for his employees and investors. I was blessed to know him.
