  Mr. CARTER of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I'm honored to celebrate the life 
of my dear friend Jim Hislop II. He was never the kind of man to sit 
around and dwell on darker matters, so it is only fitting we remember 
the incredible and happy life Jim led.
  Jim was the kind of person you'd find only in Texas: a family man, a 
gentleman, and a loving man, all wrapped up into one. He was known for 
his love of Western attire and collectibles, stylish cars, and his 
amazing skill on the grill. A man of the world, he cultivated friends 
from all walks of life and shared with them his love of music, fishing, 
and living each day to the fullest, smiling every step of the way. In 
the tradition of Texas storytellers, Jim had comedian's knack for 
telling the greatest jokes, with his delivery of each punchline hitting 
just the right spots to have you in stitches.
  I will always remember the friendship I had with Jim. He was someone 
you could count on, someone who would never leave a friend behind. That 
loyalty is something that should inspire us all today. Let's not be sad 
and glum; let us instead act like our beloved friend would and enjoy 
each other's company and celebrate his life the way he lived it: with 
passion, love, and kindness.
