It's with great sorrow, I must give notice of the loss of Jim Moore Jr. of Omaha, Ne. This man gave his time and parts to help new members of the Model T world, so as to bring their dreams to life. He personally helped me bring my 1927 coupe back to the road and he never asked for a dime, just my friendship.
We , as lovers of Model T's, have ALL lost a friend.
Rest In Peace, my friend.
My condolences to the family and to you for the loss of your friend.
George, I'm sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Prayers and condolences for you, his family and many other friends.
George, you're right. Sorry to hear of a loss of a good friend both personally and to the hobby.
Y'know, as I read this I'm saddened for two reasons. The loss of a great Model T'er Jim Moore Jr. and the fact that he was never, to my knowledge nominated for the MTFCA Walter Rosenthal Award.
I'm bringing this up because after someone passes, that has been such an asset to our great hobby, it's too late.
Most of us know of someone, as I've seen many comments on this forum about "So & So is a great guy" etc. If you feel that they really are a great person for the right reasons, let them know while they're alive. Give them the highest recognition and let them revel in the limelight (and be embarrassed for sure, in a good way) with the ultimate honor.
Nominate them for the Walter Rosenthal Award. It only takes a few spare moments to jot stuff down and tell the rest of the world how great they are. Then send it off to Rosenthal Award Committee c/o MTFCA P.O. Box 996 Richmond IN 47375-0996. You'll be thankful the rest of your life.

Ed, if I had known about the Walter Rosenthal Award ( I'm a newbie to the Model T family ) I would have done this for Jim.
I hope my small post on the forum will encourage others to nominate that hard working Model T leader, teacher. Do it before it's to late.
So sorry for the loss of your friend and Model T lover.
Remember him in your hearts and minds. Then he will live on forever
George, please accept my apology, I didn't mean to slight you in any way, i was just using your post to as you said "encourage others" to acknowledge good people, as we have so many that will never know how much they were appreciated.

Ed, I never took your post wrong. We as friends in a great hobby, need a way to acknowledge good people. And I'm thank full you gave us the direction to do just that.
