Jimmy you and I would race to the mailbox to see who could get the mail first.  I always knew when you were at work because I could hear you laughing.   You made a point of talking to everybody at the shop.  We will miss you terribly.   What a truly amazing man you were.  Your family was truly lucky to have a treasure like you.

I remember around Xmas time when Jim took myself and my brother John on a ride through back roads. Jim asked if we would like to see a place that had a lot of Xmas displays that lid up the country side. Of course we said take us to the place.  He drove over hill and dell and all of a sudden stopped.  There's the lights he said. I said where? Over there he said. Over there was about 5 miles away! John and I just laughed and Jim drove on. Never did get a close look at the lights!!!
