    My favorite memories of Jimmy includes his dad mom and Georgie . Whether it be all of us kids gathering at the house on the hill to play games,eat a meal, or just hanging out.
    At different times throughout the year , his dad “Poop Shoot” and Mom Arlene would tell all of us kids, to get some clothes together because we are going to the cabin up north.
    Usually the gang consisted of Jimmy,Georgie, Forrest, Marty , Claudia ,Lynda, Hope, myself, and a bunch of others that your name is on the tip of my tongue but it won’t come out we would load up in several vehicles and off to the cabin we went.
    Jimmy you will be greatly missed
