From riding dirt bikes over to yalls house & getting snacks to growing up with jimmy working on every vehicle I’ve ever owned. I would bring him a vehicle & get his approval before I bought almost all of them. & the few that I didn’t… well he let me know what pieces of junk I bought ( but he would always fix them for me! ) Jimmy, no one will ever be able to fix me up & give me piece of mind on the road like you did. Forever you will he missed.
