Liam, the mayor of his small hometown, is holding a memorial service
Can I have your attention, Please. Thank You.
Thank you for coming today. Jim’s family is going to have a service and a burial but I wanted to take a moment as a community to remember Jim. The first time I met James R. Machado, Jimmy back then, he was 8 and I was 6 and we were in a summer production of Johnny Appleseed.
End: From morning ‘til night, he walked. He was living his life in a way that was outside of what we were used to.
He is survived by his Uncle Walter, his sister Alma, and his mother Ida.
