I was sending email to Jimmy for the past two or three years (maybe one letter every 6 months to see how he was doing) and he responded to a number of my letters. In one letter he attached an mp3 of a song his group had recorded. I will treasure these email letters and the mp3. In one letter Jimmy mentioned "the cancer" which was a sign to me that he was not well. Then this summer Jimmy did not reply at all. I did not know he had taken a turn for the worse. I was able to let Jimmy know that I am a fan and I will always fondly remember the Mother's when Jimmy was in the band. Jimmy, I will miss you.
