It was with great interest that I read a story about my friend Jimmy O'Donnell.

If you lived in Hannibal, you knew the name Jimmy O'Donnell. His family ran the O'Donnell Funeral Home and has for many years. The O'Donnell family has helped the people of Hannibal in many ways. They have helped Hannibal grow. That is why it is great news that the Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department will be naming a park in Jimmy's honor, hopefully this year.

Way to go Jimmy. I know you are probably watching a softball game up in heaven right about now.
