Condolences – Comments and Reactions.
I’m at a complete loss for words today. The sad and shocking news about the death of Jim Cotter today has completely floored me. Jim was one of the nicest people you could have ever met in your life. He was very good friend, who definitely bailed me out on more than one occasion.Jim was very passionate about sports, especially when it came to the St. Joseph-Ogden Spartans, the Illinois Fighting Illini and the Chicago Cubs.But all of those pale in comparison to his passion for his wife, Sue, and his children Elena, Austin and Caleb.On Saturday, during the Illinois football game, Jim told me how his family would be celebrating three graduations this spring. Elena from Illinois State, Austin from St. Joseph-Ogden High School and Caleb from St. Joseph Middle School.While I will always appreciate the work that Jim did for me and the Commercial-News sports section, I’m going to miss the great conversations that we had about family and sports. (Sorry, Jim, I wasn’t a Seinfeld guy)Rest in Peace IlliniGuy.Please keep the family of Jim Cotter in your prayers. This is Rhonda Carden Cotter’s brother in law. He passed away suddenly this morning.Also Holly’s surgery is tomorrow. The surgery is expected to last 12 hours and she will have a very long recovery time.
