    To the Morgan family,
    I am heart broken of the news of Mr Jimmy. He was more than just a friend to me. For 18 years he was my only electrician I would allow on my jobs. The best of the best. I can’t begin to say the impact he has had on so many of us in the construction field. He was a father figure to many of us. My dad passed 7 years ago and he reminded me of my father so much. I love you Mr Jimmy and Thank you for touching my life and for so many great memories. Kill a big deer for me on heaven! Rest in peace my brother!
