I first met Jimmy in 1999 through Stacy. Her whole family became my good friends fast, and later my daughter's family. Pawpaw, as he was fondly called, loved Lily till the ends of the earth. There wasn't anything he wouldn't do for us. Once Jimmy liked you, you knew you had a lifelong friend you could count on. Lily will miss her Pawpaw, and I will miss my friend. Don't worry about Stacy and Thena. We will take care of them ❤
