I am so sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. My thoughts and prayers are for all of you who love him. I worked with him for about 9 years. His eyes lit up whenever he talked about his family. I could see in his eyes when he talked, how much he loved you. He always brought me BBQ whenever he went down to Carolina. I will always remember his smile. He always used to say "Whoop there it is". I pray your faith and memories will help you through this difficult time.
