I was a member of Cedar Grove in the 1950's. Pastor Jimmy's teaching helped me understand God's Word during my teen-age years, and I am so thankful to have known him. I pray God's peace will be with you during this time of grief. Carolyn Sue (White) Gamble

Aunt June, Jennifer, and Jay,

My heart and thoughts are with you right now. I know this is the time to grieve, but when I think of Uncle Jim I recall all happy moments,I hear his laugh and see his smile. He is not hurting anymore and is walking the streets of gold, I am sure he is laughing that great laugh and smiling that big smile.

He has done so much with his life serving God, he has touched so many people.

I am blessed to have had him as an uncle.

I love you all dearly, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am praying for you at this time. Dr. Austin was such a wonderful pastor who ministered to so many people over the years. We always enjoyed visiting Eastland to hear him preach. He always painted a glorious picture of heaven, where he now resides. My parents, Carl and Betty Penticuff, spoke often of how much he meant to them. He was truly a servant of the Lord who will be missed by many people. May God bless you and your family at this time. Kim and Regie Castellaw

June, my heart is with you during these difficult times. I have experienced it myself and God was and still is my comfort. We both know that Jimmy lived his life to be where he is today. Comfort comes from knowing he is no longer suffering.
God be with you and your family, I am sending hugs and prayers your way.
Love ya.

Mrs. Austin just want to express my condolences to your and your family. I was a sitter for your mother Hazel some years ago. I have often thought of you all. You and your family are truly in my prayers. Remember, earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. Mr. Austin in the arms of Jesus. Absent from the body, present with the Lord. God bless and keep you and your family.
