Fran, I am so sorry for your loss. Jimmy was a wonderful,caring,and funny man. I will always remember a few years ago when I had to leave and come to AZ because my dad was passing. Jimmy took the time to see if I needed anything and make sure I was okay. I will always appreciate that. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you and your family. Love, Lisa

I’m gonna miss Jimmy and that “hey baby, just checking on ya.” Jimmy was always there to help when I needed him…I just hope I was able to return the help and thoughts when he needed me. You do know anything you need, I’m a phone call away. OK since I got the net…you have to come over now. Keep a smile on your face and a good thought in your heart. It will take you a long way in life. Love you….

Jimmy will be missed by all that knew him. I considered him one of my best friends in all the world. He was a friend who would do anything for you and give you the shirt off his back. We had some good times Jimmy and you will always be in my thoughts. May you rest in peace. Fran, stay strong and know that Jimmy is in a better place.
