My deepest condolences to Michelle and the families of Jimmy.
Jim was always smiling and had a silly funny story to tell. One time I was at the community Center and a song played which reminded me of my Dad, Peter….I looked around and spotted Jim, while I thought he could probably dance a waltz like my dad, so I asked him and without hesitation we danced to the song all over the deck outside while everyone watched! We had a great ole fashion waltz! Miigwetch my friend safe travels on your journey.
Rest easy Jimmy.
