Jimmy was like a younger brother to me growing up on Spring Lane. We were always romping thru the woods, building camps, shacks, and tree houses,
changing spark plugs in lawnmowers, etc. Those were wonderful times. And we both shared an interest in unique cars and animals. I will always remember
that big grin on his face.
Sadly I lost track of Jim in early adulthood, but I hold my memories of him close to my heart.
