I’ll always remember Jimmy as a sweet boy with a ready smile. I haven’t seen him in many years, but I’m sure that smile had not changed. So sorry for his family.

Jimmy was always kind and never passed up a chance to say hello and ask how you had been. I will miss him! One thing he said that sticks out in my head was, "My Mom is my best friend." It was the sweetest thing. May God bless his family in this time of loss.
