Jimmy was a great man! Always in good spirit and upholding a positive attitude! He was related to my father. Even though I really never knew him in my life I spent a good amount of time getting to know him. He became a person I could laugh with and have conversations about anything. His death came to soon and we will all miss him, nothing will be the same back home without him...
