    I am so saddened and sorry to hear that "Mr. Jimmy" has passed away. I remember him & "Blackie" always coming over to my grandma's house & drinking coffee w/us every morning during the summer when we stayed over there. He enjoyed talking to us for hours & we enjoyed his company immensely! My sincerest condolences on the passing of such a sweet man! He will be greatly missed by our family.
