I will never forget you, Jimmy. Thanks for being a great role model. I'm a better man for having known you. Thoughts of you and my dad got me through the toughest year of my life. I will always be grateful.

Uncle Jimmy was a very cool uncle. I'll always remember his wonderful stories and his great sense of humor. I loved him and I'll miss him very much.
