I will forever hear him saying "darling" at every greeting we had. He was always the " cool dude" especially when I was a young teen. I can still see him driving up in his green 442 ( I think?) to the family get together at Aunt Charlies. Jimmy you will always be the "cool dude" in my heart, Rest in peace and grace.

Love you cousin,
Susan Brooks Herron
