  • All my deepest sympathy to Jimmy”s children. Seems like only yesterday when all the
    brothers and their wives were together partying and having such good times. Such
    changes in all our lives. Jimmy was always the life of the party with his jokes and
    wonderful sense of humor. We loved him so much. I will miss him and all the
    deceased brothers and sisters. What a wonderful family. You are in my prayers always.
