The Davis Family, I am sorry for your loss. Twenty years ago I had the experience of a lifetime, and Jimmy was a part of it. One week of golf in Ireland with my father and brothers, and jimmy was one of the funniest part of it. I enjoyed that trip immensely, and the multiple opportunities to golf with Jimmy after that. My prayers are with you all. Leo
