    Jimmy was around for my entire life. What a fun Cousin! I enjoyed hunting, fishing and hanging around with him. I was probably a pest of a little kid, but he never let on if he thought I wasn’t welcome. I tried to visit him and Linda whenever I came back to Omaha and he always made me feel welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed his old jokes, which reminded me of all the adults in my past. I’ll miss Jimmy and all of his contemporaries. I loved you, Man!

    Great memories with the Jim as a child. He always made 4th of July pop!
    May he rest in peace.
