I called Jimmy Linzy "Uncle Jimmy". He was a very sweet and talented man. I will always remember him for his beautiful, sweet smile. To the family, you all are in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear about his passing. He was a great asset to our African American community. He helped to fix many things at our house and improved our church. He will be missed. I first recall meeting him when Michael and I played together as kids. A great man who will be missed.
