    Thank you Jim for all the fond memories that made The Rick Estrada Karaoke Show so much fun! Jim & Laurie were the beginning of the Karaoke family, without even knowing it! We all had a good time! We will cherish those memories as we all know, “Only the good die young!” Heartfelt sympathy to the family.

    I met Jim twice and he was a great guy – from his Cowboy Hat to singing Country Songs at the Christmas Party, he was a joy to be around. He will be missed.

    We were just getting to know Jim on a personal and professional level. He was as genuine as you will find in the auto business. We are so sorry for your loss and will keep his family in our thoughts and prayers.
