Willa Jo, I am so sorry for your loss. I want you to know Jimmy was loved by everyone he came in touch with. He gave hugs to everybody. Jimmy would always look forward to your cards & cookies, he loved them and wanted to share them with everyone. He will be greatly missed, but I know in my heart that he is in a better place.

Jimmy I miss coming into work and heading down the hall to get you up for breakfast. All the girls would say Lou you get him up, he won’t get up for us. I would walk in and say Jimmy it’s Woo Woo get up it’s time for your breakfast. Sometimes you would give me a hard time, but most of the time you got right up. I miss you so much Jimmy. You will be in my heart forever. I love you Jimmy Rider. You buddy Woo Woo
