    I feel like we only really got to know Uncle Jimmy these past couple of years. We went fishing on Deaner Lake a couple of times where he easily out fished us all and made it look so darn easy! Uncle Jimmy and Charlotte joined us for several days processing the mountains of corn and tomatoes out of dads garden as well; the rest of us visited while we worked but he was focused! (He also just couldn’t hear over that electric knife lol). I’m most grateful for the relationship between Uncle Jimmy and my dad (Jerry) these last few years. Even if I wasn’t around, I always got the story and the fish count from dad. Rest easy Uncle Jimmy!
