My condolences to his Mother, Nikki, Maddy & Rylee and the rest of Jimmy's family. I am so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine as a Mother, the pain and heartache Audrey is feeling. And to lose a Father, is a devastating blow to a daughter. I pray God wraps His mighty, loving and healing arms around all of you and gives you Peace and Comfort that only He can provide. I love you so much and I am here for you , always. God bless each and everyone of you.

I met Jimmy thru Nikki (& the girls) at PMSR. Jimmy was such a character, he loved to tell jokes, he always spoke and the biggest memory is how much he LOVED his girls.
Its been a long time since I've seen/spoke to him, but I remember that about him.
Much love and prayers to his family!
