Joanna and Family, I'm so sorry to hear that Jimmy passed away. It caught me by surprise. I feel really bad. I had many good conversations with him over the years when I was friends with Mark and during the many Morra tournaments that we attended. He was just a genuine, quiet and gentle guy and I regarded his opinion very highly. HOWEVER, when we played Morra, Jimmy got "fired up" with the best of them! We won a tournament one time he and said to me, "I just want you to know that I'm proud that now I won a tournament with you AND your brother!" I knew he meant it. Again, please accept my condolences and God Bless all of you.
