Jimmy, I have a lot of memories growing up that you probably didn't remember. I remember going to your mom and dad's house on a family trip, I can still see that house in my mind. Your mama and I were "PIC's" (partners in crime) most of the time! We couldn't get around each other without something happening! I wish you could have made it to the 2001 reunion. I'm so glad we reconnected on Facebook, but we had so little time to get into the stories, pictures and memories we were going to share. We didn't get to see each other much at all, but I am going to miss you. Give your momma a hug in Heaven for me. Rhonda and Garrick, I am so, so sorry for yet another loss. I've always had fond memories of the family. I'm so sorry to lose you so soon, Jimmy, after we reconnected. God bless the family and friends, and know that you will always be remembered. Godspeed, cousin.
