Dear family,
So sorry to hear about Jimmy, Looks like he finished his job here on earth just in time for a new year in heaven! I met Jimmy years ago at MAACA when they used to have the meetings at Lanier Plaza, always the social guy! I didn’t see him again until years later about 2005-2006 when I had a chance to quote some supplies for a job he was doing. Computers were well into the workplace by then, Jimmy had his yellow note pad spreadsheet in action! One of the best ones I’ve ever seen! If you still have one of those you should frame it! During my time at Mingledorff’s the picture below hung outside my office for years...always pointed him out to people and told the MAACA stories.
Our family will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers!

I remember Mr Byrd letting Lisa and I drive his old car around and around in circles in front of their home when we were barely old enough to drive and laughing so hard with us because we couldn’t reach the peddles on the floor and it had no power steering! He was so much fun to be around. Heaven gained a wonderful comedian! So long Sir, until we meet again, please tell my Mama hey for me 💜
