I went to the little 2 room schoolhouse on Steffin Hill along with Jimmy. I was a little guy and as the new kid was the victim of bullies. Two particular bullies named the Lambright Boys lived off Spring Path which was the route I walked to school. Almost every school day they taunted me or beat me up. One day as I arrived at school Jimmy asked me what happened? Well Jimmy made sure he was on Spring Path hidden in the bushes as I walked up toward school. Here come the Lambright Boys and Jimmy jumped out and beat up the big one and kicked the smaller one in the pants. Never again was I ever bothered by them and as word got out I was jimmy's pal the other big boys basically left me alone. Jimmy was my hero and we became life long friends. Jimmy was one of the best baseball players I knew and we could not wait for spring to play baseball behind the school as well as basketball. My heartfelt sympathies to the family.Jack San Felice Arizona
