Jimmy was a special friend for so many years. He was a man of character and completely trustworthy. For the time we got acquainted when we were in South Community Hospital together, I have considered him a friend. His love for his family was as strong as any man I have ever known. His faith, like his character, was strong and without question. We send our prayers to all of the family.
