Jimmy had a green thumb. Every year he planted banana plants, then dug them up in fall and replanted them the following year.  He loved listening to KSHE on the radio.  He had a lot of good friends, including Mr. and Mrs. Bill DeSherlia of Grafton, who helped him a lot, especially in the last 6 months.
