My Deepest Sympathy to the Family and Friends of Jimmy.  I was best friends with his (late) sister Janices from Junior High to her passing.  Spent a lot of time at the Leitch's in junior and high school.  (With raising a family we lost touch for a while).    I'm sincerely sorry for the loss of Jimmy.  Thinking of you.  ❤️
