Uncle Jim, I have so much respect for you in so many ways. I will miss all the times we talked about your life. It was like having a history lesson. From when and where you grew up, your service to this great country (thank you), working in the bank for so many years and all the funny stories you shared with me especially about my dad and nana. All the lunches at the Olive Garden you drinking your scotch sours, me being your chauffeur. All was priceless to me. My visits with you was the best therapy I have ever had.
I will miss you until we meet again !
Jimmy Jr.
