I am so saddened to learn of Mr. Jimmy's passing. He and Mrs. Revonda meant the world to me and our family. I have many childhood memories that include them both. I will always remember Mr. Jimmy for his loving and playful nature. He played with the neighborhood kids as if they were his own children. You will be missed, Mr. Jimmy!!!
