Neither of us were really good at speaking our feelings when we had the chance. I am sure going to miss the advice you always shared... direct to the point, no sugar. You told me once... “Hit them with smarts not speed“. That one stuck. Thank you for trusting me with the things you loved the most.... Your Son and your family. Rest In Peace Jimmy, your we’re one of a kind. Your other Julie.
