I worked with Jimmy at the telephone's Huntington Avenue office. He was a very dedicated employee and family man.

My deepest sympathy to the family.

Becky, Mom, and all the family. Our prayers are with you during this great loss. Our loss is heaven's gain.

The pain is too great to explain, but you will stand stronger thru this time.

It is always sad to see the passing of a great person. I only knew Jimmy briefly over the past few years, but found him to be a great man ... one of pride and integrity. Our families crossed paths back in Wythe during the 40s but never knew each other, and I did not met him until meeting Becky three years ago.

My heart and prayers go out to Anne, Becky, and the rest of the family during this time. While death is inevitable it is never easy to handle. Jimmy is gone but not forgotten; instead he's gone ahead to make everything ready for their next life, just like a good husband and daddy would do.
