Say a prayer for Jim Reiss ( aka: TX427Cobra)
« on: July 30, 2019, 11:45:57 pm »
Many of us met and corresponded with Jim during his build of his fabulous '69 replica t/a Shelby Boss. Some have become friends, some good friends.
Jim is home with his wife fighting for his life. Keep him in your thoughts.....

BOSS 302's are like a fabulous WI cheddar. Both get better with age and you buy them for your enjoyment, not as an investment.

R.I.P Jim - Yesterday afternoon Jim moved on from this life to the next. One of the truly fine human beings who will be greatly missed.

I was in Africa on business for a while.  I just heard about Jim’s passing yesterday. I was stunned.

My last conversation with him was on June 6th.  He was going to see an oncologist that week. He hadn’t even been seen yet.  7 weeks later, gone.

We had just started an “FIRL” relationship, as he lives just a few towns away from me. My kids call it Friends In Real Life.  I met his wife at CoTA last year.

We kept making plans for a social with our wives get together for a cookout or a dinner out.  Never happened. 

A reminder that tomorrow is promised to no one.

Such a great person. He will be missed by many.
