Thank you folks. I'm sure there will be a true "Irish" celebration at his bar tonight. I may just show up there.
This gent was like the Good Godfather of his people. As long as I've been alive, he's the one people call in the middle of the night when there's been a DUI arrest, Old Danny Boy got tossed from his apartment on a Winter night, Jim's daughter just had her baby but is destitute and Jim is near dead with grief that he can't help her.
The drunks got bailed out and driven home. The homeless man would have a guestroom and a family's embrace, and Jim would find an envelope of ample cash left at his door.
He never said a word, nor took a moment to think about what was to be done...it was simply "done."
