Uncle Jimmy, we didn't have a relationship per se, but you were still my uncle. I do wish I had the opportunity to get to know you as an adult and somehow feel cheated out of that. I understand you had a great sense of humor. This must be a family trait. Rest well Jimmy...until we meet up again. Carolyn, you have my support and should you need ANYTHING please don't hesitate to ask

To Carolyn I'm sorry to hear about your husband's passing and I do love when a person has a great sence of humor and to that person who did not get along with your husband has some serious issues
