One thing about Uncle Jimmy was he always made sure everyone felt like family. Married into the family over 21 years ago and he always took care of family. Treated my daughters like they were his own. Truly wonderful man that will be dearly missed by all. Always fun times to joke around with him. He was only one that could pick on Christy and ever get away with it!
