    Jimmy is considered family to us. When I came back home to NPR in 96 I rented a little house in town. Jimmy knew the roof had a small leak - in the middle of a terrible storm he drove up, got on the roof with a tarp and covered the hole. Jimmy was always someone you could count on through thick and thin. I will sure miss his smile and the way he always made you feel like family. For the last several years we would meet at Orange Lake, Easter mornin Sunrise service. This year he will be with the Lord, what a celebration. Peace be with Eddie, Mike, children and grandchildren. With love from Cheryl and Karen Burney
