I will surely miss that beautiful smile of Jimmy's and his morning conversations with me as he walked his little dog to our park. He always was pleasant and cheerful and very concerned about my car being safe for me to drive. He used to stop at my fence and chat whenever he rode his bike into Rio Grande, and always had something pleasant to say to me. He and his little dog will be sorely missed in our neighborhood, come rain or shine, wind or snow, they were always walking.
Blessings to the Graham family in their time of sorrow. Jimmy was a great guy!

Although I've only met Jimmy a few times during gatherings with my husband, Carl Matthews, Jimmy had a confidence about him that he could conquer the world. He was very proud of work, and he had that killer smile. I know that he continues those trades in heaven and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
