Kim, I'm sorry for the loss of your Dad. You have been his rock for years. Jimmy was a dear friend of mine. It breaks my heart to loose him. I know I will see him in Heaven one day soon. We have talked about it at length. We were traveling yesterday so I didn't get the news. He was a great friend to me and l will always remember you all. May God bless and comfort you during this time of grief. Sweet memories. Ray.
