We are so thankful the Lord planned that our life paths cross with Jim and Joyce Cain.
We are from Orlando and spend the summer in Willis. Looking for a church we found Willis Baptist where Joyce gave us the full church tour.
This became our church home away from home. Jim was always at the front door of the church passing out bulletins with that sweet sweet smile. He had such a sweet spirit and always a kind word. Always ready to lend a hand. He didnt wait for someone to ask..he just did whatever needed to be done and always with a smile. He always had a joke or two to share. We are so blessed to have known him and to have called him friend. You will be truly missed but we will see you again one day.

Sherry and I bought the house next to Jim and Joyce 9 years ago this month. Sherry was apprehensive about moving and wondered what kind of neighbors we would have. Wow... what a blessing it has been to be neighbors with Jim and Joyce! We have chatted, visited, worked in the yard together, laughed at Jim's many jokes from the very first day we moved in, and enjoyed each other's friendship ... and shared our dog, Oscar, with them. What a wonderful kind man, and we (and Oscar) will dearly miss Jim!

Dear Brenda and Family,

I am so very sorry for your loss. Brenda, I know how close you and your Daddy were. Ya’ll shared the same sense of humor and love of joke telling which always brings joy and laughter to those around you. You will always carry your Daddy in your heart and I know he will still be watching over you from above. Sending you much love, my friend.

I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Cain was such a sweet man. I remember him as always being a happy and kind person when I was at the house visiting Brenda. He is now in heaven chatting it up with Gary, friends, and other relatives that have gone before him.

Mr. Cain was a Godly man that loved his savior with all of his heart. He loved to share Christ through his actions. He lived in the word.
He loved doing his nickel trick either behind your ear or with the little disappearing coin apparatus. He was a kid at heart and was more than willing to play kick the can or go snipe hunting. . . He was always up for a board or a card game. . . I remember going on trips with Julie and Mrs. Cain. We would count how many times he crossed over the line and would pick on him accordingly. I have many fond memories and he will be missed immensely. . .

James ( Jim Bob ) was my double first cousin with his brothers Floyd and Charles who preceeded him in death.
Jim Bob was a devout mild mannered Christain. Due to our diference in age we had no real close ties except seeing each other twice a year at family homecomings at Magnolia Hill Cemetary.

Bruce, I lost my dad and my mom when he was 70 so I know how you must feel. Maybe they will meet up. I will pray so.

Please take care and comfort during this time because it is special.
