Dear Sharman Family,

God's peace and condolences to you on Jimmy's passing. Jimmy worked for me briefly in the 1980's at Handy Dan / Handy City Home Improvement Centers, just after his retirement from National Airlines and just before he went with another airline (Dolphin? JetBlue?). We got along very well, he had lived in Savannah, GA for awhile and Savannah is my hometown. Jimmy was very personable, a hard worker with a great attitude and a winning smile. God rest him and bless you all, I will remember him at Mass and in my daily prayers.

Yours in Jesus,
Steve Kujawa
