Although I hadn't seen Jimmy for years, I have thought of him. We went to school together, shared a birthdate and were born in the same hospital. He called me "cuz" for cousin because my step great-grandmother was related to him - an aunt, I think. Jimmy and I were in a play together in 6th grade and I still have the photo. He was a nice guy and I'm sure he will be sorely missed by his friends and family.

Jimmy, I will always hold your friendship dear to my heart. I didn't know you for very long back in 1990, while co-hosting a Blues program just after your show. But I, being gay myself, was honored to arrive early at KPFT just to show my support for you and all the others in the gay community of Houston! Your legacy WILL live on, and we all thank you for being there for us, and giving us the prime voice for our rights. Be at peace, Jimmy. Love you.
