During high school we played football together we were never friends but we were never enemies either. Jimmy was just in passing of each other but their was a respect on one of other. I have been friends with Pam I know she really loved Jimmy very much and know he loved her too. His life was turned up side down when he lost his legs and later he lost Pam. Jimmy isn't in pain any more and that alone is wonderful. But his leggs are back and he is once again with the love of his life Pam. God Speed Jimmy you will be missed.
