Sorry to hear of Jimmy's Death. I am reminded of a conversation we had a few years ago when Jimmy spoke about treating people well and treating them with equality. He spoke about excluding people from things because of money or status. He was a very kind man who will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to the family. Geneal Davis Goad--THS Class of 68
