We never knew when James would appear. One day he would just drive up. He almost always brought some obscure musical recording for us to listen to. Always enjoyed those visits. We would drink a little wine and smoke a cigarette and just talk about life. My dogs loved him.

He loved his daughters, very proud of them. We talked about being a father often.

I’ll miss you, Jimmy.

Jimmy was a wonderful person and 1st cousin. He would come to mine and Leesa's place of work to see us many times, when he was in Cullman. We shared a lot of ancestry history when he would visit. He will truly be missed. Praying for his family as they all go through this time of grieving.
