Jimmy worked 2 after school jobs, one at Shopko, and one at Burger King. He is the son of Susan Liermann, and brother of Andy.
We miss him so much.

This is inscribed on his tombstone:

Warm summer sun shine kindly here;
Warm southern wind blow softly here;
Green sod above lie light,lie light-
Good night, dear heart, good night,good night.
-Robert Richardson (Susy's headstone)
