Jimmy and I were closer growing up than we were later in life. I am thankful for those earlier times before our lives took us down different paths. May he now rest in peace, free from life’s trials and tribulations of which Jimmy probably received more than his share.

Alicia and I send our condolences to Jimmy’s friends and our fellow family members. We grieve not only for Jimmy but for you as well.
