I read in the columns of that period that Jimmy was “rude”, “unapproachable”, and “monosyllabic.” I always wondered, “Who is this stranger I’m reading about?” Jimmy loved to converse, and as I said before, he had an intense curiosity and asked a lot of questions. He laughed a lot if he was comfortable with whomever he was talking to. Sometimes Jimmy would take out his false front-teeth and stick them on the table for shock value. Much of Jimmy was just a young guy, a regular guy, but a guy who was shy at heart, one who had been lonely in some part of his heart since his mother died and was always looking for his own family - a family that no longer existed. - Lew Bracker
