I first met Jimmy at my friend Johns art show. My husband Tollef and I grew fond of Jimmy and Nancy the few times we spent together. I had fun costuming him for "King Lear" held at the University of Machias. He was wonderful. Jimmy was an amazing man and talented actor! I'm very sad to learn of his passing last Friday but I know he is in a better place. My heart and prayers are with you Nancy.
Love you, Linda Mitchell-Storer
