    Jimbo, I loved you man. In my early days of sobriety you and a handful of others kept me strong! I remember your Honda Davidson on the beach like it was yesterday. God speed my friend. And Joe if you read this my sincerest condolences.

    You are walking with the other angels now, my longest and dearest friend in the fellowship. You never said a harsh word about anyone and didn’t judge anyone. I miss you and knowing you are at peace and out of pain gives me consolation. You were dearly loved by many, many people.

    I was saddened to hear of the passing of Jimbo, he was a long time friend. I would see him often at the Beach or cruising the streets of Malden on the Honda Davidson. You will be missed Buddie.

    I just came across this today. Jimmy was my godfather and I hadn’t been in touch with him in years and years. Never knew where he was. Last year I finally found him and had a couple of conversations with him on the phone. I can honestly say he was happy to talk to me after so long. I will be forever grateful that I found him when I did. I tried to call him Christmas and the phone was disconnected. I didn’t know why until today. I am sorry that I missed this service. To the family I am so very sorry for your loss.
    Rest in peace Jimmy. Til I see you again.
