Jimbo and I went to school together. Then I moved away to Arkansas. Jimbo and I recently reconnected in June on fb. He was so kind and full of compliments even while he was so sick. I will miss our late night talks about everything. He was truly a kind soul that will be greatly missed!!! Much luv, Jimbo!!
