I worked many years on the same shift with Big Bird. He was on 41 shop, which is the hottest shop out there in the summer. Jimmy had fallen out one day due to heat and we felt better calling in the Fire Rescue squad as he was taking time to come back around. Fire Rescue was asking him questions like Who is the President and what is the date. He answered them correctly. Then they asked him what his name was? Big Bird he told them sitting up straight and proud. I’m Big Bird. I assured them that this too was correct. I still laugh remembering as the Fire Rescue people looked at me thinking Jimmy was nuts. I will never forget this day. Rhonda and family my heart goes out to you. Paula Ramsey
