Jim Ready was a dear friend throughout our time at St. Mary's and we kept in touch in college. 

Jim was tragically killed while returning from a Cardinals baseball game at Sportmen's Park. He was stabbed while trying to defend a friend fro a gang of youths.

Jim was very smart but what I emember most about Jim was his terrific sense of humor.  Life would have been a blast for Jim and I still miss him.
