To:Linda, and the Brown Family.So sad to hear of Jimmy's passing so soon,but glad I got to talk with my old childhood friend and neighbor, one last time,after many years.I seemed to be in a hurry to find and contact him one month ago over the Holidays.I like to think there was a reason. Rest in Piece Jimmy, you always had a big smile, were so warm and friendly. It was a pleasure to have known you.

Dear Linda & Family,
I'm so sorry to learn of Jimmy's passing. I had a tremendous amount of respect for him for many reasons, the first being that he always did what he believed to be the right thing to do, instead of just going along with the crowd. In addition, I admired his passion for what was important in his life - his family, his work, and firefighting (I was proud to be a fellow firefighter with Jimmy). I will miss the great "pot luck suppers" and New Year's Eves that Debbie & I spent with you folks and the Chavaries; you were always guaranteed a lot of laughs when Jimmy was around! My prayers are with you all at this difficult time. - Doug Stark
