Jim was often at the shows with Linda when she judged in Wellington. He was with her this year when she judged the shows for Global. Jim was always such a pleasant gentleman.

Who wrote that piece? What in the world did they mean by this statement,
"Warm hearted and friendly, Jim commented that he actually liked watching dressage at all levels, even after its most ardent fans lost interest."

:lol:

Well, since I've never seen Linda out here (unless she's got an alter I don't know about), I didn't really think this was the place to post condolences. I thought the OP was more about notifying people so they can send emails, cards and flowers to Linda--if they know her.

Bless her heart. Of course that's what she meant. ;)

And, sending my sincere condolences, too.

See my previous post and just maybe you'll grasp the reason.

It's no disrespect to him, nor Linda.

I only understand posts to be memorials when they are about someone who has been out here and many people on the board knew them--as with cactuskate. So many of us knew her, it was a tribute when we talked about her.

For Jim, who passed but was never a presence on these boards, it is a newsworthy announcement. I just commented on the writing and the quote used, which is inappropriate for an obituary--especially when the man's wife is an international dressage judge.

Linda Zang had trained the first dressage horse I showed.

My heartfelt condolences go out to her.
