    Jimmy I will always remember all the times of happiness, friendship and your smile that shined a light of love on everyone you met. Even though our lives took us in separate directions you always remained a beautiful part of my life. My memories will reflect on those younger days of our lives and how we laughed loved and danced to a tune of true friendship that will last forever in my heart ❤️

    Talented and dedicated. Taught patients and nurses. No doubt he saved a lot of lives. Touched a few also. Me included…..sorry I couldn’t mend your broken heart. But we had some laughs RIP

    I worked with Jim for a few years at Bassett. He was very nice, had a great smile, was kind, and really cared about his colleagues and patients. He will be sorely missed. Prayers and sympathies to his family.
