Jimmy was one of a kind and you just had to love him, anyone who he sat and talked to always left with a good message and definitely something to think about. After he gave you one of his lectures he would say “this one was free, the next one you’re gonna have to pay for”. When he wasn’t long winded he would say “ok, here’s the meat and potatoes” , that meant he was getting straight to the point.
