In Memory of Jim

Jim Clarke left us way too soon on September 29. His departure leaves a hole in both our hearts and our lives. Jim did what he loved--archiving and sharing live music and photographs--and an entire community of people with common passions and temperaments formed. But he also had long-lasting friendships that spanned decades. Those who were lucky enough to count Jim as a friend, either in real life or solely online, knew that they had someone in their corner who was trustworthy and rock solid, someone they could always count on. We are all better people for having known him. 

Everyone who knows Jim knows how important music was to him. One of his favorite musicians was Slim Dunlap. Slim and his wife Chrissie have allowed his fans into their lives in a way that is both generous and touching. In 2012 when Slim had a stroke and became bedridden, a whole community of people came together to love and support him. Jim was among the leaders of that group. Jim's mom Shirley has chosen that donations in Jim's honor should go to the Dunlaps because nothing would make Jim happier than knowing that he had a part in providing more comfort to Slim. In Jim’s memory, Shirley would like us to contribute to medical expenses that will improve Slim's quality of life. All donations will go to a couple who was very dear to Jim.
