Jimmy will forever in my memory be the sweet little boy who lived across the street from me in Newport, Vermont. I used to babysit for his parents, and he and Kathy and Kerry were like younger brother and sisters to me. I can still hear him call to me from his bedroom, "Barbi, Kathy is out of bed". I am very sad that he is gone. He was a little genius.
