Jimmy, Im grateful for the support you have shown me over the years. You encouraged me to become an educator and gave me my first teaching job. My work as a teacher has been some of the most meaningful work in my career history. And thank you for getting me out of a few speeding tickets! I used your name and they let me go. Thank you for the visits you made to my parent's house (Bobby and Virginia). It was a pleasure to know you and I will see you on the other side.
