I’m a member of St. Joan of Arc Church and Jimmy loved to tell stories; and it was never a short one. The more detail the better. It also didn’t matter how many times he told you the story, it was always a good one and a long one too. They were always funny and to hear him laugh afterwards always made me laugh harder. I could tell he loved to laugh and tell stories from his past or about people he knew but they were heartfelt. He so loved his family, fishing and life in general. I will miss him and look forward to seeing him again one day. The stories I will have to tell him, oh boy!
