Pattie and family. My deepest sympathy to everyone. What a great guy he was! Always smiling. Played a big part in putting our class reunions together with you, Pattie, and some others. Those were fun weekends at the beach. I will miss my friend and it was a privilege to know him. Rest in peace, Jimmy. Now you can join your high school buddies who have gone before you and talk about the good old days at JHS and our class reunions. I wish I could be there to celebrate your life with everyone. I will be there in spirit. Sending love to you all. Carolyn Eisenman
