    To The Govoni Family; Jim’s presents in the neighborhood will be sorely missed, his smile, quick wit, and all the knowledge of everything that has happen through all the years. I will miss our talks and laughs as he sat on the steps out side his home, and he kept trying to coax Breezy up to him, then would say, well the hell with you, to her. He would brag about Westly. Talk about his sister Lorraine, and carry on about Mary Lou and his cheldren.
    I will miss this dear man. For his quick smile and wave. When I walk by. I will always say a prayer when I see that empty spot on the stairs now. He was agreat man father and friend. My prayers are with the family and friends. His passing is a great lost to us all.
    It is time for Jim to rest. May he rest in piece. I “GODS” Great garden. We all bless and will miss you Jimmy. ” Rest now in piece Dear man” Debra
