Jimmie was a light and a delight. When we were first time homeowners and moved into his neighborhood, he was so generous with us (like a dad) in sharing his knowledge, tools, plants and seeds, stories, time, physical labor, general friendship, etc with us. He made us feel so welcome from the very beginning - as if we belonged from the start. He always ended our visits with "If there's anything I can ever do to help you in any way, please let me know" and he really, really meant it. We will cherish his memory and will try to be people who can live up to his example on how to be a good neighbor.
