'Diamond' Jimmy Roy, Hopeless Optimist

The town of Braddock, Penn., is mourning the loss of a local hero, Jimmy Roy, who died at the age of 81. Roy was at one time a jewelry salesman, a used car salesman and singer, but through it all, he remained an optimist through some tough times. Dan Collison has a remembrance.
