It is with heart-felt sadness that we bid a fond farewell to our colleague and friend, Jim Livingston who passed away suddenly last week. Jim was not only part of the TMG family for a number of years, but was also a father, brother, uncle and husband. Our deepest sympathies go out to Theresa, Matt and Aiden.
