I've known Jimmy my whole life. He was friends with my family before I was even born. He even lived with us in Jeff years ago. He named his son John after my dad. I talked with him quite a bit through messenger and I'll miss him forever. R.I.P. Jimmy.

Jimmy was a life long friend, we met when I was 8yrs old which would make him 15 at the time, he was at my house on 27th Street and we had been playing hard and smoking cigs(yeah I know)but I fell asleep with my head on his front wheel of his bike and he walked home so he didn't have to wake me😢💔life long friend, brother, partner in crime and drinking buddy man we did it all. Now your turn to rest perhaps on the front wheel of an Angels bike. I love ya Jimbo,
