On February 2, 2016, many who knew him personally came together on Loving Our Long-Timers to remember Jimmy K, celebrate his life and paint a picture of him for the rest of us. Thank you to all who helped in this amazing effort. This tribute has been broken into 5 CD sized pieces. Please feel free to download and make copies but honor our wishes and do not sell or charge for them. We honor our Traditions.

Bob Barrett

One of our original members credited with holding NA together in the 70's when Jimmy K was ill. He passed on June 20, 2015. On August 12, his 54th clean date, his closest friends and sponsees (1000 years of clean time) gathered to celebrate his life.

Gene Haag was one of the earliest members of Narcotics Anonymous who worked closely with Jimmy K to help NA grow and flourish. He was renowned for always having a newcomer in tow. His tremendous belief in his Higher Power, his dedication to spiritual principles and his courage to stand up for what he believed made him a well-loved. His humility is an inspiration to us all.

​Our 7th Tradition states "Every NA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions."
