Hi June, so sorry for your loss. Jimmy was always my favorite uncle and it wasn’t because we shared the same name but he was always good to me and the entire Walker family and i’m sure everyone that he came across or knew. Some of the things I remember he loved was kids, fishing and sitting around sharing old stories especially he shared with his brother Bill, Most of all he loved you !! He will now be in a better place (Heaven) along with his mom and dad and all his sisters and friends , God Bless!
