I met Jimmy about 35 years ago; he was kind and had a great sense of humor. While he worked at Greyhound, I used to take the bus to NYC, and was given the family discount as his ‘niece’. Even though it’s been several years, I have such fond memories of him; especially those amazing cheesecakes. Rest In Peace Uncle Jimmy.
Your ‘niece’,

Jim and I worked together at the bus terminal back in the mid-1960s. We both wound up in the Army and then lost contact. I have thought of him many times over the years. He was a good friend. Hope to catch up with him in our next chapter. May you rest in peace, my friend.
