I have heard the news and read your article in the Morning Line. It is a shock, it is very sad. 
And it makes us think. I never met Jim's wife or daughter but  I imagine and share their 
pain.  The Jim I had the chance to meet was great and I will always remember my "debut" in 
Secretariat General when I discussed with him the " Vietnam fund" he wanted to launch.... 
So long ago.

It is with huge sadness that we announce the death of CLSA's founding chairman Jim 
Walker, who passed away early this morning after a brief illness. Jim died on the Australian 
Gold Coast, his loving family close at hand, as well as an up-to-date horse form guide and 
the winnings from our recent successful punting trip to the Melbourne Cup. Jim arrived in 
Melbourne to meet Edwin Lucas - CLSA's head of broking and Jim's brother-in-law - and 
myself for our annual golfing, gambling and racing week. He had been suffering from flu-like 
symptoms but was determined to see the week through. He managed a good night at the 
blackjack table and a great day at the races before returning home to the Gold Coast and 
going into hospital. A week later he passed away, survived by his lovely wife Elaine, herself 
well known to many CLSA clients, and his 11-year-old daughter Sophie - a most remarkable 
young girl and a gifted artist whose paintings so inspired her dad in his final days. Ji. . .
