Deepest condolences to you all. Jimbo was a great friend and person. Growing up with him and the rest of the folks from the neighborhood is a big part of my life memories. Rest easy my friend.

Jimmy, our friendship goes back well into the early 80s and mere words can't describe my feelings for you. You were a kind friend, generous and loyal as they come. I could always count on you for a laugh and the smile on your face was perpetual. My prayers are with your family and I pray that your soul makes a quick ascension to heaven. Rest in peace my friend. I love you always. Your friend, Robert Acquarulo.

To the family, I am so shocked We were classmates and St Francis from first grade through eighth grade then again in high school. He was always the most popular kid in the school. We were altar boys together serving mass at St. Francis. Rest in peace Jimbo
