Such a gentle spirit. Sweet, kind, intelligent, well-read.
I will always remember Jimmie's laugh and her telling me "don't be sad."
My life is so much richer for having known Jimmie and spending precious time with her. I will think of her whenever I see daisies.

Jimmie, I finally met you in person and not on the computer. Just the little time we spent talking to you I could tell you had the kindest heart. You treated us very kindly. May you Rest In Peace now sweet lady. God bless all your family and friends

I didn't know Jimmie, but know her sweet daughter, Barbara, and she's a real treasure and I know Jimmie was proud of her. Barb, I'm so sorry to hear of your mom's passing, and hope she didn't suffer at the end. Remembering all of you in prayer.

I deeply loved my Aunt May. As I type this, I am unsuccessfully holding back the tears. She was my mom’s ( Eileen Alexander Kitlica) best friend. Eileen was the older sister of John Alexander, Aunt May’s husband.

My mom and Aunt May spent a lot of time together while their husbands were away in World War II. Their friendship goes back to around 1939.

Aunt May was the last of the original Alexander Family Aunts and Uncles. The Alexanders lived on Wilson Avenue in Downers Grove. It was a big Scotts-Irish clan. Their parents were Charles and Julia. Of their seven children, there were three boys: Reid, Bud and John. .... and four girls: Margaret, Genevieve, Rita and Eileen. It was
... a great family.

I will miss talking on the phone with my Aunt May. She was simply one of the sweetest ladies I ever knew. I miss her already.
