So sorry to hear about Jimmy. He always had a smile on his face even though he was deaf. Jimmy was an all around great guy. Jimmy sure did put many a mile on his legs and feet by trying to help others.
May God wrap His arms around each of you, comfort you and guide you through the coming days of sorrow.
Jimmy will be missed by all whom knew him.
May Jimmy Rest in Peace....

Jimmy was my good friend. He always had a hug for me at church on Sunday mornings and was quick to point out my mistakes in the church bulletin. I've missed him since he's been in the nursing home. We always tried to be the first one to send each other a Christmas card and he looked forward to a new shirt from me for Christmas. I hadn't given it to him yet this year. I will continue to miss seeing him walking the streets of town usually going to the school for a ballgame. Jimmy was a good soul and had a loving heart. REST IN PEACE my friend.
