I am Jimmy's cousin. His mom and my dad (Wayne Adams) were brother and sister. I was actually trying to locate Jimmy on facebook. I am so very sad that me passed. He was 11 years old than me, but I remember him well. He has such beautiful blue eyes and always had a smile on his face. I would love for someone to contact me through my email if possible.

Sorry to hear about Jimmy. We played baseball in high school. He was a good pitcher. I remember his black 1960 Chevy that we used to go riding around town in. After I went into the military, I only saw him once when he was a postal worker. He was delivering the mail at my parents house. God's blessing on you Jimmy.
