We lost my Uncle Jim Aardweg on Monday. He was 85 and lived an extremely full life, but it's still never easy to say goodbye.
I've written a lot about Jim here over the years, and he played a huge role in my growth as an outdoorsman and as a person. Jim was a beloved figure in my family and was a great man who dedicated much of his life to public service.
Here is a link to his obituary in the Richmond Times Dispatch.
