We were sadden to hear about the passing of Jimmy. Please accept our since condolences.
Kay sends her sympathy to the family. She worked with Jimmy in his B.Z.A. board position at Henrico County Government, some 20 plus years.
I got to know Jimmy shortly after I began my career with State Farm Insurance in 1973.
