Not sure what to say?

I don't even know where to begin. I was heartbroken when I got the news but I can honestly say that he truly lived his life to the fullest. I have so many memories over the years with our office family and will cherish them forever. Such a great person with a huge heart that will most definitely be missed by so many. To the Shields family my love and prayers are with you in this difficult time and always. Heaven definitely gained another angel.

I know he will be waiting with a jack and coke . He and I had some great times together Ill miss him a lot.

Shields Family,
I was so sorry to hear about your father's passing. He was a very kind and considerate man. You will forever be in our thoughts and prayers.

Jimmy and I met when we were 11 years old at St. Rock Park. We played football together and continued our friendship throughout our lives. Jimmy was a loyal friend and an all around good man. He loved his family and his friends and made the world a better place. He will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace Jimmy.

What a great loss. My deepest sympathies.

Great memories of Jimmy. Always full of life. You will be missed, but never forgotten.

Mr. Jimmy was a true angel on earth, his Nola Goula Family will miss him everyday. He was a great boss to work for in the short time that I got to know him. He always had a smile on his face, and that is how we will remember him.
