    I went to school with Jimmy. We were in the band together. He played the drums and his brother Stan played the tuba. So sorry to hear of his passing. Where have the years gone. My prayers sent to his family.

    I am so sorry for your loss! I thought a lot of Jimmy. Working with him I sometimes wanted to lock him out of the office but we had a lot of fun too. I wanted to see him while I was over but we keep missing each other. You are all in my prayers. God bless you and comfort you at this time.
