  • To Carol and the Family, Sorry to here about Jimmy. He was a pleasant person to be around. He was a big help to me in the National Guard-he hired me for my first job with the 212th. I was looking forward to seeing you at the 212th 50th Anniversary next year. 
    Lots of great memories and tales.
