I am so sorry for your loss. We went to school together way back when... He was a great guy. We had some fun times together and whenever I think of him or his name comes up I will always smile.
My prayers to the family to remember the good times. I am sure there were many.

Sherry and Family,

We are so sorry for your loss... It was always a nice surprise and pleasure when he would just stop by to say hi and to have "a beer." :) He always put a smile on our faces and made us laugh with his stories and silliness.

Smile because he Lived

You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he lived,
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him,
or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him and only that he is gone,
or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn back,
or you can do what he would want:
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Unknown


Jimmy will always be remembered in our hearts!

Love,
Andy, Darlene and Family

So sorry for you loss. Hadn't seen Jimmy in a long time. Always hoped to run into him but never got the chance. Will always remember the Great standup guy he was. Lotsa great memories from the Sky Club, to watching him ride his Harley thru Mahaney parking lot while standing on his seat. The grand finally was the hill climb up to the upper lot. Will always remember his great laugh, sly smile and honest friendship. Regards.

Patty and family,

Although I didn't know your Dad...I'm sure that he was a wonderful man and that you have lots of special memories. As I lost my Dad 8 years ago, I can tell you that it will get easier with time although it may not seem that way right now. I can't tell you how many times over the last 8 years that I will see something or hear someone say something that will bring a smile to my face because of my Dad. Take care and God bless.. I pray God's precious arms will surround your family and especially your Mom during this transition. luv, Carla
