Mr & Mrs Cromwell and family,

You all are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I have known and worked with Jimmy since we worked together at Riverside Hospital back in the late 80's then at NNS until recently. He was so smart, very witty, and was always willing to help others. He wasn't just a co-worker but a friend as well. He has already been missed by me and many others at NNS over the last few years. May you find comfort in knowing how much he meant to us.
