But it goes beyond that with details only a family can provide: With nicknames like “Too-Tall” and “Charming,” Jim loved to play tennis and joke with friends.

Diaz came up with the idea when noticing the nondescript white brick wall on the south side of the building that long-time Asheboro folks remember as The Vacuum Center. “I wanted to make it more interesting and to represent the flower shop and the bears sold here,” he said.
So this fall Diaz called Ozzy Aguirre, an all-purpose painter who specializes in murals, to transform the plain white wall into a stunning floral garden.
