I came on the tails of Jimmy in 1992 to the CHA. When they decided to get their act together and acknowledge those who gave some, CHA FINALLY acknowledged Jimmy in the appropriate manner and honor those who gave all.

Rest in peace my brother and watch over us who continue the fight to make this world a better place.
