I remember taking care of Mr. Rapp in the Cardiac Cath Lab at LMC a few times. He was such a sweet and funny man! There are certain patients throughout my journey that have held a special place in my heart, and he was surely one of them. Prayers and love to his family during this difficult time.

I was always excited to see uncle Jimmy. I do not recall a time in my life when I didn’t see him smiling or laughing. He was always in good spirits and I loved that about him. I am sure he made an impact on everyone he met. He will be dearly missed.
