So sorry to hear about Kimmy passing. Got to know Jimmy (also known as three fingered Jimmy) thru UPS, he was a good guy and even though haven't seen him he went out on disability, he always sent me things on facebook, he will be missed. Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.

Jimmy, known to many of us at UPS by his CB “handle”, 3-Fingers, was a kind man and diligent worker. I admired him and am sad to hear about his passing. May God’s Peace, which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the Grace of His Love.
