So sorry to hear of Jimmy\'s passing. I had so much fun laughing and joking with him at the Foresters. When I walked in and saw him sitting there it put a huge smile on my face. In a very short time we\'d be playing Gin Rummy or Pinochle and the laughs would begin. Of course I haven\'t seen him in quite awhile and have missed him although he was always in my thoughts and will continue to be. R.I.P. my friend.
