My dear friend, Jim Faulstich, passed away on September 22, 2013. Jim had a profound impact on my life. He taught me about the importance of civic duty, the depth of opera, and the joy of life. I even learned more about India from Jim. Everyone who spent any time with Jim, loved him. His enthusiasm for life was contagious. Jim's contributions to the business community and government organizations are still positively impacting the lives of millions of people.
Jim was not only a great friend. He was my hero. May he rest in peace. My condolences to Jim's family.
