I just found out about you passing. I'd been trying to check on you. I am so sad to hear this. I got to know Jimmy in 3rd grade. I was running around the corner of the school building and ran right into him. We became very close and I would go with his family to Mississippi all the time. He was my first boyfriend. Remember we were little kids. We stayed friends through the years. I will never forget him. May he Holy Spirit comfort his wife and children and family. Say hi to your dad for me Jimmy. Hope to see you again. Love.

My husband and I will certainly miss Jims presence as he was a kind and gentle human being. Jim was very pleasant and always had a smile on his face. He was very respected and loved! He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and especially his grandchildren. We are so very sorry Karen. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers as well as the rest of your family! A good man and a great loss. May he Rest In Peace!
