Always enjoyed playing Texas Holdem with Jim. He played so many different hands you just never knew what he had. He will be missed at the many games he played in. Ernie Petkovich

Thank you Ernie. He was very shrewd when it came to cards. Getting out to the games kept him active and social. He loved it more than anything. When I was young we would play lots of Gin Rummy or Setback with Gram Cosker in between waiting on customers at the vegetable stand on Tunxis Avenue. Very fond memories.
