I can't even begin to understand the sorrow you are experiencing from the loss of "Jimmy".

He was special to all he associated with and he wit and outlook on life can't be replaced.

Know we keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

For as long as "Jimmy" remains in your hearts and the hearts of those that enjoyed him, he remains with us and will bring smiles and happiness, when we think of him.
