    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the profound loss of your brother, Jimmy.
    I remember Jimmy as a kind and decent man and a fixture at Sacred Heart School when I was a student in the mid 70’s/early 80’s. He was always friendly and respectful and worked hard to make our school clean and safe. He had a wonderfully distinctive singing voice and was so gifted. He was in his element when he sang.
    I last saw Jimmy at Shaw’s several years ago and he was as approachable and friendly as ever, even though I don’t think he really remembered me from the old school days, I was just so happy to see him again after several decades.
    It was shocking and sad to see Jimmy’s picture in the Ledger today but I also smiled and remembered what a good person and Christian he was.
    We need more nice people like Jimmy Shaw in the world.
    May he rest in peace.

    Think of you often!
