    May you rest in peace old friend.
    . I knew Jimmy back when he worked at the bank downtown and then on the bowling team we had plus at our social events
    . He was always a good friend.
    My condolences to the family. From what I knew of Jimmy he probably was a very good father and grandfather, that would have been Jimmy.
