My love and prayers to my cousins, Michael & Annie, Aunt Patty, & family. Uncle Jimmy was one of a kind, he had a heart of gold & a laugh you could never forget. I remember growing up being around Uncle Jimmy & my cousins. We had so much fun & Uncle Jimmy was usually in the center of this. My cousins may not remember me, especially Michael & Annie, because they were young when they moved to Louisiana but my mom always stayed in touch with Uncle Jimmy. He came to St. Pete a number of times to visit us & always gave us so many great laughs. My mom & Uncle Jimmy were very close, even more when they were the only siblings left in the family. Well, now Uncle Jimmy is with his family in Heaven. He will be so deeply missed but he left each of us with so many great memories & love. RIP my dear Uncle. Lots of love, hugs & kisses always from your " Messy Nessy". XOXOX

One of my favorite memories is spending countless nights at your home when I was younger. Mikey and I would play outside until you came home from work. You would pull up in your Matlack truck and with eyes wide open we'd watch you park your big truck. Im going to miss your Facebook messages and I love you's. I love you Uncle Jimmy. Thanks for all the memories.
