Kathy, I am your cousin, Dennis Doggett of Lexington KY. I certainly remember Jimmy as a boy when we would all come up as a family to visit Toots, Billy, Lady Corrie and others. Many good memories as a boy. I have a photo of Jimmy and I in the front yard of Lady Corrie's house riding bicycles. In fact, I learn to ride a bike for the first time in her driveway. Sorry for your loss. Died much too soon.
