Aunt Kathy, Kerry, Kelby, and family I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Jimmy was a very kind and caring man all his life. I have fond memories of Uncle Jimmy baby sitting me when I was very young. I will never forget our trips to the Mifflin pool and returning to gramal and pappy's with Uncle Jimmy to play bottle caps. I can still remember when he brought Aunt Kathy home to meet the family. He will be missed by so many but remembered for his wonderful qualities.
