And the Lord Said, "Gimme Jimmy!"

"Gimme Jimmy!" was the oft-used campaign slogan of Buffalo's longest-serving mayor, James Griffin. His Honor passed away on Memorial Day.

A devout pro-life Catholic, he ran on the Republican, Right-to-Life, Conservative and (at times) Democratic tickets. He welcomed the Spring of Life pro-life rally to Buffalo in 1993.

I met him once, briefly, and he was friendly, witty and gallant. A true gentleman.

His funeral today at the Basilica National Shrine of Our Lady of Victory was packed with mourners.

Rest in Peace, James Griffin.
