RIP Jimmy,
Thanks for always making Tony and I and Brandon feel welcome at your home. We enjoyed the singing and the get-togethers we shared for many years. Now you can sing with the angels. Say hello to Margaret for us.

I lost track of Jimmy when we left the Fire Department many years ago. He was a good person. I am very sorry to hear of his passing.
