Like clock work Jimmy would come up to my desk shortly after lunch, give me his flip phone and say open this. “Who do you want to call?” With a huge smile he would want to call Mary as soon as she left the parking lot. Then he’d call Gayna and Betty. I loved this sweet man. He will Truly be missed. He lit up when he saw me, he couldn’t wait until I got back on Monday. Love you Jimmy. Rest In Peace.
