Jimmy was one of the greatest people I ever met.  When I moved to North Carolina in 2005 and started working at the library, he was always a constant happy smiling face.  I considered him a friend and valued his opinion.  I hope he knew how many lives he touched.  I am a better person for knowing him.  Thank you Jimmy.
