Michael, Kathy, Maureen and Family.....My heartfelt sorrows at this time. We will all carry some fond memories of Jimmy. A very long time ago I met all of you (1971 to be exact). Jimmy was a character and I always enjoyed talking with him. Your whole family has been close to my heart throughout these many years. This is a very difficult time but I know you will all find peace and comfort thru one another. Sending you all my Love....Elaine
