I was truly blessed to know Jim as I am to know you Gay. I know the Lord has His arms wrapped around you both. Feel His presence.

I've had the pleasure of being a friend of Jimmy's for 67 years and during many of those years we were inseparable. Jimmy was a big man with a heart of gold and his presence in my life was always a blessing. He loved family and friends and could always be counted on to bring common sense and laughter into any situation. If you want to be a good father, good husband or good friend, just remember how Jimmy did it. To say that "you knew him" would be a great understatement because if you had known Jimmy your life was changed in some positive way. Jimmy, I will miss you very much and always remember the goofy things we did together. Rest in peace my friend and enjoy your heavenly reward, you deserve it!!!!
