More praise for Jimmy West

I loved the article about Jimmy West in the Jamestown Press last week. However, It left out a very important fact. How many families in Jamestown have a cradle that was made for their baby by Jimmy and delivered to them soon before the birth? I know there are very many.

Here is a man who would show up at your door with his hammer and just offer to help out if he knew that you had a project—such as laying a wood floor—that could use his expertise. How many people today do that? So here’s a cheer to Jimmy who has touched so many of our lives and a big thank you for just being who you are.
