My thoughts and prayers are with all of Jimmy Synan's family and close friends. Jimmy was a resilent fellow who didn't quit. A few years ago while talking with him at the Hilltop we were dicussing his throat cancer and out of know where he asked me if it sounded like he had a frog in throat? That was the one and only time he showed his humor with me. Jimmy was just an all around good guy. To Jessie and Heather, you have my deepest sympathy.
