When they were filming, "She's Dressed To Kill", up at the top of the Palms Springs Ariel Tram, I was there with my Mom and a friend of hers. We had no idea they were making a movie up there. I got bored with the conversation the two women were having, so I stepped outside of the restaurant. I was leaning on the railing and looking down into the valley below. Then a man walked up and stood right next to me. He was wearing a heavy ranger jacket. I was freezing cold. As I was dressed for the warm Palm Springs below weather not the snow at the top for the tram. When I looked closer, it was Jim McMullan!!!!!! OMG...It Was Jim McMullan!!!! I had been a fan since, "Chopper One" and followed him all over TV. Now, not 3 feet from me was Jim McMullan!!! I could not say a word. I was in shock. Then I keep thinking, what if he offers me his jacket???? OMG, I would be wearing Jim McMullan's Jacket!!! He didn't offer by the way. But I kept looking at him. I was disappointed that he had such a big nose. (Isn't that horrible) Then I find out, while watching the movie, that it was all makeup! But ever since that May 1st day, I have always wanted to tell him, "I Know Who You Are And I LOVE You!!!" I was what, 17 then? But I had the biggest crush. I just want him to know that after he left, I ran to my Mom and her friend and I was so excited! I stood next to Jim McMullan!!!! OMG! Just Want To Thank You For Being One Of My Childhood Crushes. I have never forgotten you or those few minutes we shared. You Will Be Missed!

I was deeply saddened to read of Jim's death. He was such a good and kind man, and he was a wonderful actor.

Jim and I got to know one another well at Bally's Gym on Bundy Drive in West Los Angeles. I always looked forward to our conversations, and I was
so sad when he moved to Paris to play Wyatt Earp at
Disneyland Paris.

I can only imagine the grief his family is feeling at the loss of such a dear man. He will live on in the hearts of his family, his friends, his fans, and in his work for the rest of time.

My thoughts and my prayers are with Jim, and with all of his family at this very sad time.
