Jimmy, I knew you had passed, I just didn't know when until I saw an old obituary today.
Always thought you were a decent guy, one of the most pacifist people I ever knew of, I don't think you would've ever done anything to hurt anyone.
I heard you play a few times, you were good on that bass guitar, there are a lot of great musicians up there, I hope you're getting to play with some of them .
May God Bless you.....

Jimmy's time on this planet was limited...but the love, laughter, music and the memories he left behind go on and on as a lasting legacy. Jimmy left an indelible mark on the lives and hearts of many people...and will never be forgotten.

I am so sorry to hear about Jimmy's passing. I spent a lot of time in Airport Grocery over the years and Jimmy was always so nice. He truly will be missed.

While I haven't seen Jim in many years, in 1975, I was seeing a guy who would take me to Merigold to hear him and Fish Michie and several others play guitars. Those were good times. So sorry to hear about Jim's passing. May God bless him and his family.
