Jim definitely was a character. He was kind, and had such a funny sense of humor. I always loved running into him because I left every conversation lighter than I went into it. I am very sorry for your loss, Jimmy was a very good guy - he will be missed.

My friend Carolyn's younger brother Jimmy was a thoughtful, caring and helpful man. Years ago we all enjoyed laughing together at parties and while playing cards for hours at Carolyn and Donald's house. It's shocking that he died so young. RIP Jimmy, you will be remembered and missed.
