    Jodie and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Jimmy has been a friend for over 50 years. He was a kind and good person. Never met a stranger and could make you laugh with his stories. I pray God will cover you with a blanket of comfort and peace and give you beautiful memories to sustain you.
