    Dear Mary and family, I was sad and shocked to hear of Jimmy's passing. He called me last week to check on my health. I really appreciated it. He was a good man and I always enjoyed him and Arthur. I was in there almost every day to see them. I miss them and all their friends. He helped to make it such a special place. Now he is up in heaven with Smokey and Hank. Please accept my condolences. Sincerely, Wally
