    Jimmy was a wonderful person. I thank God that I got a chance to see him last summer at Phil and Bonnie’s home. He was always smiling. He and his brothers came from a loving home and it showed. My prayers go out to his entire family. I just learned of his passing a short time ago posted on Facebook. I regret that we could not be there with everyone.

    No doubt God has said “well done, well done my beloved child; you have run the race and now you’re Home”. Jimmy was loved by many, and his absence will so felt. We are just heartbroken.
