With a very heavy heart I am sending out my condolences to Jimmy’s family. I grew up with Jimmy and Carol. My parents Alma and Joe Pettinato were good friends of Jimmy and Carols parents. We spend many many happy times at each other’s houses. Birthdays, Holidays or just stopping by for a cup of coffee, great laughs of memories of how my a dad and Jimmys mom teased and tormented each other....amazing childhood memories. As time went on, families grew, lives changed....we all grew apart.
I just recently connected with Jimmy on Facebook. What a amazing person he became. His life, his family, his love for everything, simply loving life........God speed now Jimmy....say hi to everyone. And by the way, you have your Moms zest. ♥️
