Dear Aunt Babe and family, I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Jimmy.I love you all and you are in my thoughts and prayers.I am glad I was able to talk to him. Even though he was sick and having trouble breathing he still asked how I was doing and asked about my shoulder.I have a lot of good memories of him.The last time I saw him was when mum died.I am sure they are having a ball together up there.Sending prayers of comfort.
