    Memory Of Jim Sinclair aka Snowball.
    I was always a little afraid of “Snowball” with his height and yelling. But the last thing he ever said to me was “Ni Ha” which as he explained is Chinese for Hallo. We were talking about ways to greet people.

    Jim, you probably wouldn’t have remembered me, but I worked at wintercomfort a few years back. You would come in, sometimes in a real grump, and sometimes just with a big smile which made us all laugh. You were certainly unforgettable and I was so saddened to hear the sad news. I know you’re in a better place. Fly free and keep smiling

  4. Kirsten Lavers says:

    Jim – I will always remember you drinking coffee! and dancing with Kim at the FLACK gig at the Portland Arms. I will never forget your wonderful and extraordinary voice. My biggest regret? that I never recorded an interview with you. I’m sorry. Rest in Peace – you deserve it.
