So sorry about Jimmy. He was something else. He could say some of the sweetest things and funniest things. He could be very kind and put others before himself when it came to others eating. He wanted you to eat even though he couldn't. I know that was bound to be hard. Linda I'm sorry about your Brother! He's in a better place where he can really enjoy himself!
