This is indeed sad news.  Jimmy Norwood always seemed to be either serious or shy...I never had the opportunity, or maybe I was too shy.  I learned just a year ago, my parents purchased a new home from his Dad and I believe they had a lumber company.  It becomes interesting how we may be connected from childhood.
