    I am so sorry for your loss. Please, accept my heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Jimmy and I had been in contact during the last several months on Facebook. He enjoyed sharing his political views and talking about his children who live in Colorado. I sent him an Irish care package on St. Patrick’s Day. May your many happy memories comfort you during this difficult time. God bless you all.
